Chinese studies for kids and teens!

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, we are moving our classes online to Saturday from the comfort of your own home. 

It is acknowledged that culture element plays an important part in motivation and we're firm believers in Content & Language Integrated Learning, learning and teaching immerse in the target language.  Last year, we introduced an innovative way of Saturday Chinese school where students learn with their peers based on their levels for the 1st half of the lesson.  After a short break, all students took part in various immersive activities together.  This model worked very well and we are hopeful that we will be able to re-start it in Sept 2021.

Teenage Students Raising Hands

“The fact is that given the challenges we face, education doesn't need to be reformed -- it needs to be transformed. The key to this transformation is not to standardize education, but to personalize it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions.”
― Sir Ken Robinson

    After the consultation with the officers in the representatives of the Ministry of Education based in the UK. I am afraid the TOCFL will now be postponed to 2021 as Dublin is under Level 3 restriction. We are very sorry for the cancellation.
