View Full Version : Mandarin Playgroup/Class in Perth
Anyone knows of any Mandarin playgroups or enrichment play classes for toddlers in Perth? We don't speak Mandarin at home and I would like my toddler to be exposed to this language. We're moving to Perth at the end of the year and I've read about Julia Gabriel classes conducted in Mandarin.
I'm not sure how young they start but a lot of people send their kids to Chung Wah for chinese classes.
Thanks Maiko! Will check it out....
I am also interested in teaching my two toddlers Mandarin from an early age. We do not speak Mandarin at home. Did you find a playgroup or classes appropriate for toddlers in Perth? Your original post is now two years old so I hope you get this message. Thank you.
Re. Chinese Mandarin immersion classes for babies/kids in South Perth Australia in June 2011
I read at http://chinesemandarinforkids.net.au/Class-timetable.php.htm that a new startup called Multilingual Kids proposes to start Mandarin Chinese classes for babies/toddlers from 18 months to 7 years. The time and place is at St Mary's Anglican church at 9 Ridge St in South Perth in June 2011.
The website says:
The classes will cater to kids from 18 months to 3 years and 3 years to 6 years of age.
The class term will involve a one hour lesson once per week for a 10 week term, delivered by a native Mandarin speaker.
Each student will be accompanied by a parent or guardian during each lesson.
The lessons are Chinese Mandarin immersion through fun, music & play
I believe Mandarin will be a useful and important language for my daughter's future so I want her to start learning early, so I plan to enrol her.
More details here:
interested to see how the playgroup goes.
we have a mandarin playgroup but its through the church and the parents are native speakers.
we speak cantonese at home, so would definately consider putting DD into a mandarin playgroup (forces me to brush up too haha)
Trisha, where is the mandarin playgroup? Perhaps my daughter could go there?
Im not in Perth Sorry :)
