6 ways your child benefits from Mandarin Stars
Why choose Mandarin Stars?
Trained teachers who are passionate about Mandarin
Our teachers have a genuine passion and love for teaching the Mandarin Chinese language and culture to children. We provide rigorous formal training with our Mandarin Stars Teacher Training Program. We also consult with leading education consultants (some of whom are globally renowned) to ensure that our programs meet the high standards that any parent would want for their child’s education.
Professionally researched programs
Our programs deliver proven results and are professionally researched on an ongoing basis. Our child-centric, emergent and immersion-based Mandarin learning program is developed every term. We regularly discuss together as a teaching community the best pedagogical practices for teaching Mandarin to children. We consult with educational academics and experts such as the University of Sydney and the University of Melbourne to deliver a world-leading Mandarin Chinese program.
Meet the team
Mandarin Stars is the creation of Dawna Leung, the mother of three Australian Chinese children:
“My own research showed me that the success of my children’s ability to learn Mandarin would depend on their desire to learn, so the Mandarin Stars program we offer is of pure enjoyment to the children. Our approach is not academic or intensive. Instead, we offer activities that build vocabulary and conversational skills in Mandarin in a fun, interactive, learning environment. Our program has been developed so that your child will enjoy learning and playing in Mandarin and as a result, be inspired to learn Mandarin in the future.”
Kim (Mum to Riley)“What a wonderful job that Mandarin Stars has done! Riley can count from one to ten in just one term and can name several colours and fruits. Never imagined he would be able to pick it up so quickly so kudos to your team! Looking forward to next term.”
Chris and Cill (Parents to Mariella)“Mandarin lessons offered in an educational play-based format – we are in our 2nd year and our child loves it!”
