Chinese as Heritage language (CHL) Intensive Track (马立平 Ma Liping textbooks, grades 1 - high school)

The CHL Intensive program is for students who have a Mandarin Chinese-speaking environment at home, who already have strong Chinese language abilities, especially in understanding and speaking, who will have time to review and challenge themselves. The recommended amount of homework and study time is 40 minutes a day for at least 4-5 times per week. It is also recommended that parents assist the students in their studies.

The suggested age to start this program is 6 years old in grade 1. This program teaches how to speak, read, and write Mandarin every academic year as the student advances from grade 1 through high school.

  • Using stories that are fun and well liked by children
