Early Literacy Offering

Our Early Literacy offering provides structured and systematic approach to teaching the most commonly used characters to new learners.


  • Teach the meaning of characters, broken down by the meaning of different parts of each character.
  • Introduce characters through story telling and theme familiar to young learners.


  • Build awareness in Chinese character structures and understand the function of characters and radicals through games.
  • Transition from recognizing characters to reading simple sentences using already learned characters.

Our offering includes two parts:
