Systematic Mandarin Training Programme 系统中文课程

We developed the LCA curriculum through years of researching, teaching, and observing on what our children like doing at different stages cognitively, emotionally and physically. We picked out the best elements of children’s classes and coupled it with our knowledge, experiences, tons of love and our endless passion for creating a Chinese learning community.
