Let's Play Mandarin

A Unique Place for Children to Socialise in Mandarin

Why The Early Chapter?

Language fluency requires learners to fully embrace a language as a communication tool. Language is best learned by using it in our daily lives and activities, rather than through a traditional classroom approach.

Mandarin Chinese fluency can open many opportunities and the language is now widely taught in schools. But few school learners can articulate in Mandarin like a native speaker.

The Early Chapter is a clubhouse / playgroup that immerses children in Mandarin as they embark on a world of exploration, creativity and camaraderie. Children learn and use the language during play and a host of fun activities. We aim to create an enjoyable and effective learning environment. One of the favourite place at the club is our Happy Kitchen where children learn Mandarin through cooking their favourite dish.
