Mandarin Beginner’s Class for Kids Happening at Aspley State School

The Lyrebird Language Centre is conducting a Mandarin Beginner’s Class for kids every Sunday morning at the Aspley State School.

It is never too early to start learning a second language. In fact, studies have shown numerous benefits of learning foreign language to young children. Some of the benefits include:

  • Boosts problem solving skills, critical thinking skills, and listening skills
  • Improves the child’s memory and concentration
  • Gives the child the ability to multitask
  • Enhances creativity and mental flexibility

Apart from these benefits relating to a child’s cognitive development, children who are exposed early to other languages also learn to embody cultural sensitivity. This is primarily because language and culture are very much intertwined; and by learning a new language, it offers a child cultural understanding that will lead for him/her to display a more positive attitude towards the culture that is associated with that language. Hence, foreign language allows young children to open their minds and appreciate the world and its diversity even more.

This class is ideal for kids who don’t speak Mandarin at home but would want to learn the language and overall an introduction to Chinese culture. The beginner’s class being offered by the Lyrebird Language Centre allows kids to have fun whilst learning through various games and songs. Aside from playing and singing, kids will also learn a few basic Chinese characters and the proper Chinese pronunciation called Pin Yin.
