After-School Program

Our After-School program is open on every public school school day (as determined by the Cambridge Public school calendar). For academic year 2022-2023, the first school day is Sept 8th 2022. The last school day is Jun 16th 2022 (Total 178 school days). If classes are cancelled due to unpredictable circumstances, we will push back the last day of school in order to make up the classes accordingly (up to three make-up days). The classes are held each school day from 3:30pm to 5:00pm and are open to students age 6 years (as of 9/1/2022) or older. Each class size is limited to 5 to 20 students. It is required that each student register for at least 3 classes (3 school days) per school week. To register for the after-school program, please click the link Register Online.

Class levels:

Students learn standard Chinese pronunciation and phonetic alphabet (Pinyin), strokes of Chinese characters, rule and order of strokes, commonly used structural parts and radicals of Chinese characters and word forms and structures. Students will develop basic skills to recognize Chinese characters and build certain amount of vocabulary, they will learn to read simple picture books.

Middle Level:
Here we put emphasis on training students to develop their abilities to recognize Chinese characters without any help and increase their Chinese vocabulary. We also emphasize on students' abilities to understand and use different words and phrases, as well as their sentence-building and reading skills. Students will be able to write short paragraphs to describe an object or a situation.

High level:
Here we aim at training students to develop skills of independent reading and analyzing. We will also enhance the training of students in understanding rhetoric and logic in Chinese.
