There will be a registration fee of $15 for new students (this is waived for old students). Our classes tailor towards children ages 4 to 16. You may come early at 1:15pm to register your children.

Children aged 4-5 may attend our Chinese Kindergarten class at 1:30 pm on Sundays. This class is conversation and activities only, without writing.

We also have two adult classes on TUESDAYS and SUNDAY morning, $175 for 10 sessions:

  1. Do you have any adult classes starting in the fall? And do you offer any adult intermediate level classes? I’ve previously studied Mandarin, and lived in Mainland China for 2 years, and am looking for something a little more advanced than a beginner’s class.

    1. Yes, we have adult intermediate language classes starting August 19th 7pm-8:45pm. $175 for 10 sessions. Hope to see you there!

  2. Two kids ages 9 and 11 y.o. would like to have classes together. 1:30pm to 4:30pm won’t work for them because they will be in school. They have no Chinese language experience.
    Thanks!

      1. Do you guys hire Chinese teachers? I wanted to be a volunteer Chinese teacher and I have teaching experience in a Memphis Chinese school in the weekend.

  3. My 8 year old son may be interested in taking classes but he has no Chinese language experience. What is the cost for beginner kids classes and how do we register?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi there, no worries. We are always accepting new students and have beginners classes. Please come at 1:30pm August 17 for registration. We only accept cash or cheque, the price is $195 for the semester (16 sessions) each session is 3 hours (that comes to $4 an hour) Hope to see you there!!

  4. I have a 4 year old with some Mandarin knowledge. Do I need to sign him up for classes in advance or just show up on August 17th to register?

  5. I would like to register my two for Spring Semester. We are previous students so I understand registration is waived since we have already paid it. However, is there a way to pay the fee on a weekly basis as oppose to one lump sum? Thank you.

  6. Hi! My son is married to a wonderful Taiwanese American young lady. Her culture and language is naturally very important to her. I have been using Rosetta Stone and Pimsleur (still at a beginner level) and I thought that having a language teacher may be a great help to me. I saw on your site that you offer an adult’s beginner class on Sunday’s. Would it be possible to join that class now, or is there another class about to begin? (I will be visiting my son and daughter-in-law on May 17th and again from July 13th to July 28th. Those are the only Sundays that I would be unable to attend.)

    Thank you. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

    1. Hi Linda, we have an ongoing adult class Sundays 10:30am – 12:30pm (this Sunday is easter so there is no class). Class will resume April 12th. We also have classes on Tuesdays 7-8:45pm. You can come join us any time – and make up lost sections /roll over classes to the next semester.

      Hope to see you soon!

      1. Thank you, Raptoria, for your quick reply! I will attend the April 12th class. Do I register at that time or should I stop by on Tuesday?

        1. Hi Linda, you can just come around 10:20am on Sunday to register with Marian. You can pay with cash or cheque.

  7. Hi Raptoria,
    I hope you are doing well. I have decided to start my Mandarin
    Beginner’s class in August. I am afraid that I will forget everything I learned those first 3 weeks with a 3 month break inbetween classes. I see that Fall Registration begins on August 16th, so I will sign up then.
    Hope to see you then!
    Linda

  8. Hello, my boyfriend is Cambodian and we have two beautiful daughters.
    I am looking for classes/ a school/ books on CD in Khmer.
    He speaks to them in Khmer a little bit but not constantly and I can’t find any resources to supplement. Do you have any Cambodian employees or classes or know of any?

    1. Hi Jessica, one of our teachers was from Cambodia and I believe he runs some type of community organization. Try calling our school’s number or dropping in on a Sunday during school hours, we are very friendly and would be happy to help you get in contact. Tell them the webmaster sent you (Tina).

  9. Hi Raptoria,

    I hope you’ve had a wonderful summer vacation. I noticed on your calendar that August 16th is the first day of classes. When would be a good time for me to register for beginning Mandarin adult classes?

    Linda

  10. Hello,
    Do you offer summer classes or tutoring? My son is going into 9th grade in the fall of 2016.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Joanna, we offer summer classes for children from May 22nd – June 26th 1:30 – 3:30pm. There are 6 sessions and it is $100. Feel free to stop by on Sunday to talk with us if you have any questions. Hope to see you soon!
