• What’s the format of WuKong’s Chinese courses? Which class type should I select for my child?

    Currently, WuKong curriculums are divided into two types: 1-on-1 private lessons and mini-classes with 2-4 students. Parents can choose the curriculum that is best suited to their children’s needs. The mini-classes with 2-4 students are suitable for International Chinese L1-12. With four students in class at the same time, it will provide a real classroom-like atmosphere for them. This way, children are able to cooperate, discuss, and compete with each other. Peer learning also tends to make children subconsiously compare themselves with one another, thus stimulating their thirst for knowledge and desire to perform well. Also, class types can be changed after registration according to children's needs, so parents can feel more at ease. 1-on-1 private lessons are suitable for students who are in the beginning stage, elementary language version of the curriculum, or the basic stage after the age of 9. This makes it convenient for parents and teachers to personalize learning schedules for children.

    There are both written assignments as well as oral assignments, both of which aim to help children achieve comprehensive improvement in their communication abilities. Also, homework assignments are given so that they are in sync with classes.

    The amount and difficulty of homework assignments vary depending on children's ages and proficiency levels.

  • What is the earliest age for children to start learning Chinese?

    We recommend that children as young as 3 years of age start learning Chinese. 3 years old is an age at which children are linguistically sensitive, and is also the age at which the areas of children’s brains that are responsible for memory develop the most quickly. At this age, children have a sponge-like capacity for learning languages, and it can be the beginning stage for them to lay the foundation of literacy and cultivate their ability to express themselves. 4 to 5 years old is the formal stage at which children begin learning to write Chinese characters. Children of this age will learn twice as much with half the effort and make progress rapidly.
