Mandarin Courses for Children
Mandarin is surely the language to learn now and even more in the near future. More and more schools worldwide offer Mandarin in their regular curriculums or as an optional language. By speaking both Mandarin and English, your child can potentially communicate with half the population in the world!
At Hong Kong Institute of Languages (HKIL), we offer a variety of quality language programmes for all ages and levels, using the latest course books and methodology. All our courses use digital tools and audio visual aids to maximise interaction and communication.
We believe that the learning process should be integrated with all the joys that each age brings. We strive to provide each child with the best possible educational experience in a professional, caring and fun-filled atmosphere. We have beautifully furnished and well-equipped centres dedicated exclusively to children’s classes, creating a fun and nurturing environment.

This exciting programme offers your child a progressive and stimulating learning experience through extended opportunities to explore, interact and create. They will discover new vocabulary, benefit from endless opportunities to assimilate language with fun-filled activities, and develop social interaction skills.
This progressive and stimulating programme is designed to draw on what children are interested in and familiar with in their daily life, and capitalise on their eagerness to learn, to boost language and intellectual development. Children will be immersed in the language and express themselves more naturally as they progress in this course. They will also develop literacy, numeracy, creativity and a love of learning.
Learning to write well is an important skill. It is also a great way for children to express thoughts and feelings with clarity, consolidate their literacy skills and give them an enormous confidence boost. Creative writing is more than stringing words together to form coherent sentences. A creative writer needs to master several skills: imagining a logical story, selecting the right words, creating memorable characters, editing and proofing their work.
