For your case, you can send your daughter to CSL class, Chinese as Second Language. Thats the purpose for families who don't speak Chinese at home, like when I learnt English in China.


Please let me know if you need more detailed help.

Good afternoon Mr. Wang,

My daughter attended Chinese school from September to December '08. She wants to start Chinese school again, and I am willing to sign her up,


Because we do not speak Chinese at home, I am not able to reinforce the lessons at home. We are not Chinese, but we want our daughter to learn, speak and respect Chinese.  Can you help? Will you be offering a "bi-lingual" Chinese class for those children who do not have Chinese in the home? I dont know if individual tutoring is an option.  I need your advise. Thank you,
