As a home schooling parent, you recognize how important it is to find effective and appropriate educational materials. You also know that guiding your kids in learning a foreign language is essential in preparing them for applying to universities, future study and the job market. With increasing exposure in the media and academic world, you realize that Chinese is quickly becoming the most important foreign language of the 21st century. You would thus like to introduce your children to this fascinating and extremely rewarding language but are struggling to find materials that are both engaging and standards-based.
At ActiveChinese, we share your commitment to your child's education and our extensive offering for the primary and secondary levels will ensure that your kids will have the motivation and language skills to carry with them into university study and their future careers. Unlike other language programs, ActiveChinese is able to uniquely balance tangible results with a motivating learning environment. Here's how we do it:
Motivating from Day One: ActiveChinese's Student Centered Approach
Our program stands out from most Chinese teaching materials through our emphasis on student centered learning and a program that is tailor made for students from English speaking backgrounds. ActiveChinese focuses on motivating student interest from day one through multisensory multimedia that will appeal to your kids and keep their curiosity and interest peeked.
Measuring Assessment: ActiveChinese's Standards-Based Curriculum
The ActiveChinese School Edition and Kids Edition was designed according to ACTFL's "5 Cs" for foreign language acquisition and both programs contain numerous examples that meet all of the criteria set out in those standards. Furthermore, the School Edition 100 and 200 Series prepares students for the AP examination test, the IB initio, and SATII subject test. The Kids and School Edition also includes student tracking features for parents to monitor progress and assessment test scores.
Achieving Results: ActiveChinese's Diverse Offering and Tutoring Services
You are ultimately concerned with achieving tangible learning results for your kids. With ActiveChinese's diverse offering of multimedia programs supported with textbooks and workbooks, we are confident that we can provide the all-encompassing curriculum that is essential to accomplish proficiency in a foreign language. What's more, we have a dedicated staff of professional teachers in Shanghai that are trained and certified to teach children from an English-speaking background. Our integrated tutoring feature is a cost-effective way for your kids to interact with a native speaker at the fraction of the cost of a tutor in the US.
We invite you to review our Kids (K-8) and School (9-12) Editions and we are looking forward to the privilege of contributing to your child's education.
