    Category: Classes and Languages

    Welcome to the BEST Kids Mandarin Classes in Sydney! Now enrolling for 2018 term 2  for Chatswood location. 2018 April holiday class   MmBC appeared on the story about Mandarin language learining in Australia on ABC1 lunchtime news 23rd of August 2012. If you missed the story please visit Here for the video. MmBC appeared on “The Making of Modern Australia” on  ABC1 on Thursday July 22nd 2010. One of our students showed Australia how much she loves our classes. Why Mandarin?   Mandarin is the only official language of China and is quickly becoming one of the most valuable languages in the world to speak and understand. However, many parents think Chinese is hard for their non-Mandarin speaking children to learn. In fact, Mandarin is not difficult for kids to pick up because for them learning is just play! We have called our sessions Playclasses because that is what they are. Kids will learn constantly while having a great time and lots of fun. With Mandarin classes popping up everywhere these days it is good to know that at MmBC your kids will be taught by professional tertiary qualified teachers. So, you know that every teacher is not only great at what they do but they care about your children and the quality of teaching because they have dedicated themselves to teaching kids as a career.  Why us? Our two types of classes have been specially designed by an experienced early childhood educator for both Mandarin and non-Mandarin speaking children aged 15 months to 12 years. They are unique and follow the biggest rule of effective teaching: very small classes. The small groups of only six kids meet the differing needs of different children and allow perfectly timed teacher intervention for high learning outcomes. The smaller the group the better, no matter how many teachers present. High ratio does not equal high quality, only small classes can acheive the best results. We constantly re-evaluate and improve our program based on new research and different needs of different children. Our teachers have taught many non-Mandarin speaking children who have no Chinese experience at all. So, join a playgroup near Sydney city in Waterloo hear them singing Mandarin songs in just a few lessons. Imagine how exciting it will be to hear your little one talking, singing even writing in Mandarin!! Key features of Mandarin mandarin:  ·Very small class sizes with a maximum of 6 kids ·Teachers are all from mainland China with Mandarin Certificate  Obvious learning results  ·3 hour classes and 75 mins classes for different needs Our own exclusive and unique Mandarin music CD ·Highly educated & experienced program designer  Why now? As most people understand learning a second language is best begun in childhood when learning is effortless, especially when it is fun! Learning a second language at a young age also prepares their speech organs for future Mandarin speaking which is essential for an increased chance of having a native accent and reaching a native level of fluency.  Research shows learning a new language will give your child more confidence, it will make them more tolerant of other cultures and it will improve Read more [...]

Professor David Crystal, one of the world’s foremost language experts, advises ‘People who used to be able to make their way in the world as monolingual English speakers are now finding that they’ve got to compete with people who are genuinely multilingual’. In just five years, the number of people learning Mandarin worldwide has soared to 30 million. China – a rising world economic power By 2027, China is projected to overtake the United States as the world’s largest economy. Already China is Australia’s largest import and export trade partner, according to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). Dr. Jane Orton from The University of Melbourne states in her report on Chinese Language Education in Schools that China is to Australia: A regional neighbour Its largest trading partner A rising world economic power A major source of immigrant workforce A major source of international students A major source of tourists to Australia A major destination for Australian tourists The source of its biggest immigrant settlers A country with a long and prestigious culture Home to 1 in 5 human beings on the Earth Mandarin in Australia ‘Students want to sign up for it; parents are asking for it; communities are asking for it.’ That’s what Brett Lovejoy of the American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Languages reports. Here in Australia, there is growing demand from parents and the business community to encourage more children to learn Mandarin.

The ability to effortlessly absorb a new language begins to decline by age six, according to Robert DeKeyser, a professor of second-language acquisition at the University of Maryland. Dr Robyn Moloney, a senior lecturer at Macquarie University, notes that research shows ”second-language learning increased cognitive power, divergent thinking and creativity, enhanced literacy ability in the first language and communicative abilities”. Dr Moloney says children have the ability to understand and use a second, third or fourth language without inhibition, without confusion and, ”with a beautiful accent”.
