Chinese with Meggie Language School offers Mandarin Chinese instruction to students ranging from toddlers to adult professionals. Our Little Tiger Chinese Immersion School is a full-day, M-F, program for children in PreK-3 through 2nd Grade.
Mommy & Me
Our “Mommy & Me” class, which is also open to fathers and other caregivers, introduces infant children and their parents to our program and the Chinese language. The class meets weekly for 40 minutes and is lots of fun for the little ones and parents alike. For more info, please visit: Mommy & Me.
Toddler and Preschool Immersion Program
With our pre-school immersion students, we take advantage of young children’s unique abilities to develop listening and speaking skills through exposure and engagement. In our Toddler Program, we work with children from 18-months through 3 years old. Our PreK program is for children 3-5 years old.
Students in these age ranges develop their skills in a way that mimics the way that they acquire their native language. They learn through imitation, repetition, songs, games, and a variety of other carefully designed activities. Advanced pre-school students begin to read Chinese characters, phrases, and short sentences.

Elementary students learn listening and speaking skills through a variety of means, including conversation, and subject-based lessons in math, history, geography, and arts and crafts. Students work with both pinyin and Chinese characters, learning to read sentences and simple stories.

Young Adult and Adult Programs
With teens and adults, we take a more formal approach to the language, emphasizing pinyin, tones, pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, and general conversational skills. Because our curriculum is developed in-house, we tailor our approach to the needs of specific students. In the past, we have helped adult students prepare for graduate school proficiency tests, civil service examinations, professional appointments in Asia, and a variety of other needs.
