       Why Learn Mandarin?

 

Your Child’s Future!

 

Mandarin Chinese has become one of the most sought after languages in recent years. Understandably so, as an early fluency in Mandarin can provide children with a hefty advantage in their future. Professor David Crystal, one of the world's most renowned linguists, describes how monolingual English speakers now face genuine competition in the multilingual. His claims are well supported by the fact that over 30 million people now learn Chinese worldwide.

         Mandarin in Australia

 

With growing demand from parents and also within a professional environment to learn Mandarin, there's no better time than now. Studies suggest that children under the age of 15 possess the mental flexibility to learn Chinese rapidly. They also advocate speaking Chinese and learning the language as a whole to understand the culture involved when dealing in China.

 

         China – a rising world economic power

 

China is a major source of Australia's immigrant workforce, and is the home of many Australian international students. Our relationship only grows stronger with China as they have certainly boosted our tourism industry, with China also being a popular holiday destination for Australians 

 

        Why teach Mandarin to my child now?

Early exposure to the Chinese language can help make the crucial steps towards achieving fluency. Children especially have an unparalleled ability to learn languages through studies suggest one's ability to absorb a new language is a skill that rapidly declines with age.

 

Dr Robyn Moloney, a senior lecturer at Macquarie University, notes that research shows "second-language learning increased cognitive power, divergent thinking and creativity, enhanced literacy ability in the first language and communicative abilities". Dr Moloney says children have the ability to understand and use a second, third or fourth language without inhibition, without confusion and, "with a beautiful accent".
