More about each class

Here at Mei Hua, we use curriculum developed by Better Chinese. Additionally, children are introduced classic Chinese nursery rhymes or ancient poetry to enhance their learning experiences that are culturally relevant and developmentally appropriate. The factor of hands-on-learning is reflected in the making or performing of a key Chinese character in each lesson in the form of an arts-and-crafts project.
