This program, available in Chinese and Japanese, is designed to
facilitate and further Asian language and culture learning. Students
are provided with great opportunities to learn the target language

students promote sharing of the target culture and thoroughly
understand both Western and Eastern cultures. No prior knowledge
of the language is required of either the student or the family.

culture learning that emphasizes skills necessary for effective
oral and written communication. Instruction covers: practical
vocabulary, basic language structures, and the essentials of reading
writing, listening, and speaking.
On the basis of childrenís ages and academic levels, learning
materials are appropriately selected and compiled to make math
learning interesting and systematic. Instruction covers a lot
of repetition and practice, which is a very useful way to help
children learn mathematics. The curriculum starts from beginners
level to advanced level.
