The class is in a small group, so that your child has more opportunities to interact with the other children and the teacher in Mandarin.
It is child-centered learning. The course content is based on children's personality and interest.
Our teaching philosophy is inspired by a Monterssori approach and an Orff approach. Your child does not only learn Mandarin, but also developes motor skills, problems solving abilities and builds self-confidence.
The teacher incooperates sensory play and a STEM/STEAM approach to education in the classroom. Your child not only learns the language, but also developes his/her creativity.
Children love to play. Through sensory play activities with our excellent teacher your child will improve their language as well as their attention abilities.
Paula and Olivia started going to Mandarin classes with Luna and Inan before they turned 5 and 3 years old. Before then, they barely spoke any Mandarin (even if we tried sometimes at home). Soon, I quickly learned that they not only liked going to the classes, but that they have an interest in learning Mandarin!
The classes on Saturdays have made it much easier for me to practice Mandarin during the week, and made the experience fun for all of us. Now, when I ask them what they want to do on Saturday morning, they both scream "Mandarin class!" with strong enthusiasm.
I think Lil' Tizzy Mandarin's pedagogical approach and the teacher's enthusiasm are the keys! My kids learn through play, and the teachers are very creative in how they teach them. I can strongly recommend Lil' Tizzy Mandarin to every family that wants their kids to learn Mandarin in a fun and child friendly way!
Hi, I am Luna!
To create a language learning environment that is warm, interactive and fascinating to the children, and to help them express themselves with confidence, is of highest importance for achieving comprehensive language development. I do my utmost to create a positive and warm environment for learning, home in on the personal needs of each child and use engaging and effective teaching concepts and techniques, including interactive games, storytelling, dialogue practice and more, all according to a custom made study plan.
My teaching doesn’t just emphasize mastery of grammar and vocabulary, but rather focuses on instilling a passion for learning and curiosity towards Chinese language and culture. My hope is not only that my students become skillful in their language use, but also broaden their perspectives and come away enriched by the experience.
