Education through personal interaction

Our teachers will get your child to speak, solve quizzes or games, and answer questions about her or his life or preferences.

We add more focus on speaking and listening, or put more focus on reading and writing (e.g. If your child already has a Chinese-speaking environment at home). Plus we supply after-class worksheets and printables.

    About GoEast Mandarin

    What can my child say per level?

    Total beginner level 1
    Here we introduce the Pinyin and the most basic words and characters to your child: How to say her or his name, family members and their age. And the time, animal also included.

    Total beginner level 2
    Here we build on basic Chinese words and phrases (characters included). Here your child can talk about transportations, occupation, daliy life, weather and shopping.

    Beginner (3 & 4)
    At a beginner level (comparable to YCT3), children can speak more in detail about school life, like the school they go to, which classes she or he likes at school, the city they live in, and their friends. They can start to have a real conversation in Chinese, albeit at a beginner level.

    Elementary (5 & 6)
    At the elementary level, children can have a full conversation albeit many words are still out of their vocabulary. But in essence, they can talk about habits, their personalities, and the social life, like health, science and technology, and environment

    Intermediate (7 & 8)
    An intermediate level simply adds more detail to the whole elementary level, whether it’s about the weather or their hobbies. Children will have much more confidence holding a conversation from start to end, and have no problem keeping the conversation going. In addition, children can read and understand a simple story.

    Upper intermediate (9 & 10)
    More and more abstract terms are introduced. Children can compare different cultures and which kind of TV shows, or which kind of holiday. And why? Your child will be able to answer in high detail, describing physical aspects of a topic as well emotional aspects. In addition, children can read and understand the story, like Chinese idioms story.

    At this language level (seen from a language perspective only), your child could theoretically study or work in China.

    Advanced (11 &12)
    Here your child can basically converse at a native level. While specific topics are unknown (we are giving an example: aviation terms), your child is free to express herself or himself in any topic or opinion freely, whether abstract or very concrete. In addition, children can read and understand the article, like Chinese culture story, Daily News, and so on.
