Chinese Classes for Kids

Thank you for your interest in our Chinese classes for kids. Mandarin is one of the fastest growing languages in New York City and is quickly becoming one of the most important to learn. Hills Learning offers both private and group classes for kids to learn about this fascinating culture and language.


Private Lessons

Hills Learning through years of teaching in some of the top schools in New York City has developed a program for teaching kids Mandarin. Classes are a mix of language instruction combined with fun activities, games, and songs. Basic vocabulary and grammar, along with the pinyin pronunciation system and simplified Chinese characters, are taught to children of all ages.

Private lessons follow our SWIRL method of combining all five language skills (Speaking, Writing, Intonation, Reading and Listening). Lessons are usually held at the student’s residence or at our center. We’ve taught kids from 6 months to 16 years old, so it’s never too late to start looking into Mandarin language instruction for your child.
