Hawthorn - Australasian Centre of Chinese Studies




A Revolutionary Approach for 4-year olds upwards! Learn Mandarin Without Tears.

The objectives of our Children Chinese Classes are as follows:
  • To introduce the Chinese language to the children in a fun and non-threatening classroom environment through the use of our Accelerated Learning technique.
  • To provide them with a solid foundation for learning Chinese in future years (e.g. VCE Chinese) through teaching them the basics of the language (e.g. Pin Yin, Chinese script, tone marks, grammar) and conducting these classes in English (as opposed to a non-English speaking classroom environment) with less than 10 students per class.
  • To teach them effectively using a flexible and modularised structured syllabus which will let them use the Chinese language in everyday situations.
  • To ensure that the children will grow to love studying the Chinese language by not overwhelming them with new information too fast and too soon. They will learn Chinese in a way which will let them retain the information more effortlessly and be able to use the language more confidently with a strong foundation
The teaching theory of 'Accelerated Learning for Children' (ALC) is based both on Accelerated Learning techniques and Multisensory Instruction (Montessori, 1912). The term Multisensory refers to any learning activity that simultaneously inputs information using two or more sensory modalities, such as touching, hearing or seeing. Multisensory teaching links four parts of the language - listening, speaking, reading and writing together. In a typical class that implements Multisensory techniques the teacher uses both oral and visual details that need to be learnt so that the student's mind will be consistently exposed to the material.

'Accelerated Learning for Children' is specially designed for primary school students. ALC teaching is children centered and is based on the premise of effective learning rather than rote learning. Each class is designed as a 90-minute learning activity. There are 8 classes (one class per week) per term and 4 terms per year. In every class, there are many games, songs and role-plays. Children will learn listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in a fun and happy learning environment and experience a whole new different approach to learning Chinese.
