Mandarin Lessons are offered to suit all levels from Beginner to Advanced. These courses are available for both Children and Adults and include conversational skills. Teaching is in either Mandarin or English and Mandarin depending on the course taken. To foster talent more courses are being planned to develop language and cultural objectives.
With the objective to faithfully preserve Chinese culture, Traditional Chinese writing and spelling is the main emphasis in the school, but the simplified version is also taught in the senior classes to ensure students can recognise Chinese in both forms. Knowing both the traditional and the simplified forms enables the students to apply the language skill in more situations. Special emphasis on Chinese heritage and cultural understanding.
Chung Tian Chinese School has an ongoing development plan for its teachers to ensure they are qualified and equipped to benefit the students. Teachers attend Chinese Teachers’ Seminars and Cultural Teachers’ Seminars organized by the Chung Tian School and by Overseas Teachers organisations. This enables our teachers to keep their skills up to date and use modern teacher methods and resources.
Chung Tian Chinese School operates under the guidance of Education Queensland and is an official member of Ethnic School Association of Queensland. Primary School, Junior High School and Senior High School level Mandarin Ability Certificates are issued upon completion of courses.
