The planet we are living is becoming smaller and smaller than before because of the globalization. We are all the global citizens. My goal for your child is to provide a quality Chinese Education program so that all students can enjoy the difference of Chinese culture and learn some basic interpersonal language and skill. Through Chinese immersion program I will help the kids to form a universal view of the world and finally become a qualified global citizen.
