The popularity of Mandarin is growing as China’s influence grows throughout the world. More and more families tell us that they are willing to take on the rigors of learning a language that is wholly unlike English in order to gain the advantage of being able to speak the “language of the future.”
The Oriental Dialogue, has therefore, developed a curriculum that maintains our dynamic, playful approach while respecting the particular challenges of learning this language.
Children in this class don’t sit still for long! Accompanied by parents, these young “students” start learning a new language through a variety of activities designed to engage their minds and bodies. Words & Expressions form the foundation for the classes, as the children speak simple, everyday sentences, sing, run, spin and jump around the room! Meanwhile, our teacher works with the accompanying adults, teaching them age-appropriate games and activities so that they can reinforce learning at home. These “play classes” are great for parents who want to learn a new language alongside their children!
Within two or three classes, kids ages 3-5 learn key phrases in their new language through simple, repeated songs and chants. We also ensure that their language instruction is combined with cultural exposure. With a growing level of activities, increasing levels of engagement and understanding over time, students not only understand, learn to speak, sing and play in their new language, but read and write as well.
The course is designed such that every weekend will be a new theme, and therefore, new parents and children can join in on any weekend of their preference. For such parents, the course fees will be Rs. 600 per weekend.
However, if you enroll with us on a monthly basis, the fees are Rs.2000/- per month for the parent& child duo.
