“My kid really enjoyed the summer camp. Teacher was great with children, very patient and knowledgeable. My kid started talking in Mandarin and teaching me Mandarin words. I loved that they gave us many pictures at the end of the camp for us to cherish. Would definitely go back next year.”

Erine Budi

“Our children have been coming to Everyday Mandarin since they have been in kindergarten. They thoroughly enjoy being in the program, learning about their culture and language. Ms. Wu along with staff, continues to passionately teach the students mandarin in a positive way as she loves all her students. We appreciate and value the program very much, hoping it will stay in our community for a long time as a tool to help preserve culture and language for the next generation.”

Questions, call/text (888)489-9791 or email learn@everydaymandarin.org

Packages are limited to the use by one student only.

The most you would pay for extended AM Care is $250, extended PM care is $375 but most likely the cost would be much less.

We don’t believe in making a profit from extended care we’d like to split the base cost, $750/week, among the total number of students enrolling in extended care.

Here is an example of what the weekly cost for extended care might be:

1 student – $750.00

2 students – $375.00 (the most 1 student would pay for aftercare)

3 students – $250.00 each

5 students – $150.00 each

7 students – $107.14 each

Less than $100 if there are more than 7 students enrolling in extended care.

The weekly cost will be determined by:
8-9AM $250/# of students = AM Cost
3-6PM $750/# of students = PM Cost

*See the weekly schedule above for a current count of extended care students.

1 teacher to every 12 students. On field trips we have lower ratios, usually 1:6.

We will cancel class at least one month before the start date and will issue you a full refund. But typically classes fill up fast! The response has been amazing and our classes have already reached the minimum number of students required.

We do not offer sibling discounts.

Yes, we are open to volunteers helping. We don’t count volunteers as staff and they don’t apply to the teacher to student ratio. Many of our old students come back in the summer to help and practice their Mandarin. All staff must undergo a Livescan background check to work at Everyday Mandarin.

学习中文的困难和挑战Difficulties and challenges in learning Chinese

学习中文确实会有一些困难和挑战,但却是一个令人兴奋的学习过程。 了解一些学习中文时的常见问题 ,可以帮助您或您的孩子有效地学好中文,以下是一些常见的问题: 首先,来说说汉字和发音之间的关系。 汉字是中文的文字,每个汉字都有自己的意义、文化和发音。 在学习汉字时需要记住大量的符号和笔划。 拼音或是注音符号是一种辅助工具,用来标示以及帮助汉字的发音。 但是,拼音和汉字之间的对应并不总是一致,甚至注音符号和汉字之间更没有直接的关联。 这样的问题可能让初学者感到困惑,因此在学习上就是一种困难和挑战。 其次就是语法结构的问题,中文的语法结构与英语和其他语言不同。 例如,中文的词序通常是主词-动词-宾语,顺序是完全不同,这对于英语母语的人来说可能需要适应。 再来的困难和挑战就是听力和口语的部分,中文的声调很重要,不同的声调可以改变词的意义。 所以初学者可能需要时间来熟悉这些声调,更需要花时间在口头练习上才能习惯中文发音和语调。 最后就是大量词汇的挑战,中文有大量的词汇,学习和记住这些词汇需要时间和努力。 对于这些学习上的挑战与困难,其实了解中国文化和习俗对于理解语言至关重要。 学习中文除了需要耐心、持之以恒,它其实也是一个充满乐趣和丰富的过程! 那如何让孩子学习中文更有效率,也更有吸引力呢? 其中一个方法就是采用沉浸式的教学方式。 现今中文教学方法大多是都是采取所谓沉浸式教学,它最大特点就是营造一个足够的中文教学和学生练习的环境。 线上直播互动中文课程也是如此。 所以,学生可以在很自然的条件下,将所听、所说、所看、所写、所用皆以为中文来使用。 特别注意是,不用过于担心中文文法难、汉字难写、发音不容易等问题。 在沉浸式的教学环境中,似乎看不到这种”难”,因为老师会将复杂的中文学习变成了有趣的活动,实质的生活体验,有用的语言交流等。 当学习变成了有趣好玩的活动时,孩子们学习态度的积极性将会大大的提升。 这种教学方式除了塑造足够的中文环境之外,更展现了以学生为中心的教学理念,不再是单向教学而是双向互动。
