Chinese with Meggie is a language learning community based in Austin since 2006. We offer year-round Chinese language classes for children and adults; annual summer programs in Austin and Beijing; and Little Tiger, a year-round accredited Chinese immersion school for children 3-7 years old. We have also published a series of children’s books, Diving Into Chinese, that we use in our immersion classes. For more info about our projects, please read on!
Austin Summer Camps
In addition to our regular classes, we also offer several summer programs. At the annual Austin Summer Camp, our kids explore the world and our own backyard through different activities, games, food, and crafts. Check out the short videos of our Austin Summer Camp on Youtube!
We are now enrolling for our 2018 Austin Summer Camp. Our camps are open to current CWM families and those who are new to our programs. No prior experience with Chinese is necessary.
This summer, we will host three two-week sessions at our Hyde Park location. Each camp meets M-F from 9am-3pm. Dates are as follows:
Session 1, 6/18-29
Session 2, 7/9-20
Session 3, 7/30-8/10
Beijing Summer Camp
We also organize an annual Beijing Summer Camp. The camp provides a unique and immersive learning environment for students ages 5-10 years old. Students and their families travel to Beijing and learn alongside local Chinese students, giving a direct experience of Chinese culture. The program also includes optional language instruction and local tours for parents who accompany their children on this trip. Please see more detail here. To get a sense of the camp, please check out our 2017 Beijing Summer Camp video. Enjoy!

Diving into Chinese – Young Beginner Reader
Chinese with Meggie is very happy to announce our recently published books, the Diving Into Chinese series, published by China Sprout.
We have developed the series of books based on our years of working with young Chinese language learners.
The series consists of 41 books and 4 audio CDs, which are divided into 4 levels for young, beginning Chinese learners. Each level has 10-11 books and one audio CD. Readers can easily find all recordings of both the content and new vocabulary of each book of one level in the CD. A complementary series of iBooks is also available.
Upon the completion of this series, learners will be able to accumulate about 300 vocabulary words, 550 Chinese characters, and 80 basic Chinese sentence structures.
