Current Classes in Chinese School

AWVCS is dedicated to educating students in speaking, reading and writing the Chinese language. AWVCS typically offers 7 years of formal progressive Chinese education from Phonics to Levels 1-6 (ages 5-18).

There are 3 classes per Sunday session from 1:30 pm - 4:20 pm with two formal language classes, followed by an optional cultural 3rd class designed to enrich academic learning with cultural experiences including Chinese calligraphy and painting, folk dancing, arts and craft, Chinese chess, Chinese yo yo, and much more.

We have added three new classes in the past two years, and we are happy to announce that they are very successful and we will be offering them again this year.

  • PRE-SCHOOL CLASS introduces Chinese to Mommy/Daddy & Me for 3-6 year olds with their parents.
  • CONVERSATION CLASS for students of all ages who simply want to learn how to converse in Chinese.
  • ADVANCED CLASS for students beyond Level 6, especially those requesting for Level 7 and SAT II classes.

In addition to these classes, we will also opportunity for students and parents who would like extra help with homework or revise class materials during the 3rd class.  The sessions will be held in free-form, relaxed format.

There are two semesters in a school year, starting in early September. First semester of the school year begins in early September; and semester begins in mid-January and ends in mid-June.

Students will also participate in a range of cultural events including Chinese Teachers Day, Poetry Recital/Harvest Festival, Chinese New Year, Mother's Day, and a end-of the-school-year Awards Ceremony.

Classes are not categorized by age, but by individual student's ability and mastery of the Chinese language. There are at least two exams per semester on a range of written and verbal tests depending on individual teachers.
