Our school has carefully selected the best text books published by Sky Mandarin and approved by both of Dept of Education and the Overseas Community Affairs Council in Taiwan.  The advantage of this series of books is that they include both of Traditional and Simplified Chinese characters as well as two phonetic systems - zhu yin and pinyin to help our young learners to master the language.  I've always wished my children could learn both systems and these books turn my dream into reality!  We also use Speak Mandarin in 1000 wordsSpeak Mandarin in 500 wordsHello HuaYu, Go Chinese and our Library to cater for different ages/classes. 


Our aim is to encourage our next generation to develop an interest in language learning either is part of their heritage or as a second/third or even fourth language.   Our Methods of teaching are through creative activities such as Chinese puppetery, play, songs, games, story, videos, cultural element and ICT in classroom to motivate and cultivate the ability to listen, to speak, to read and to type in Chinese.  We want to make it as much child/student centred as possible because each child is different as is their learning style.  
Our school is managed by Evan Furlong ( and we run two terms per year.  Classes are on Saturday from 1-3 pm in Bray, 14 weeks between Sept. to Dec. and 18 weeks between Jan. to May
