FLIEC Mandarin Chinese has been designed by a Chinese-language professor with twenty years of experience teaching foreign languages at college level by adapting the most current foreign language acquisition research and methodology to K-12 education needs. This immersion-style program will allow your child to begin the process of learning how to speak, understand and write Mandarin Chinese using some of the most effective and fun ways to acquire a language: songs and games, task-based learning, total physical response, storytelling and performance, and practical role-play activities geared to developing both linguistic and cultural proficiency.


In the first semester of Beginning Mandarin Chinese, children learn how to greet and introduce themselves in Chinese, how to talk about themselves (grade in school, subjects they like, hobbies, likes and dislikes) and how to describe their families members and friends.


In the second semester of Beginning Mandarin Chinese children reinforce the basic language skills acquired the first semester, and learn to perform a variety of survival tasks such as making new friends, buying things, or ordering food.


FLIEC plans on adding grades every year so as to serve the needs of your child up to high-school and AP Mandarin Chinese test preparation.
