China Institute is NYC’s leading school of Chinese Studies. Founded in 1933, the School is chartered by the NYS Board of Regents and offers a wide range of fun and immersive small-sized Mandarin classes tailored to student’s age and abilities. The School runs the largest and most comprehensive Chinese language programs in NYC.

Mandarin Munchkins: Mandarin, Music and Movements! Learn Chinese language and enjoy a bonding time with your kid(s). Your little ones are at a critical age to expand their exposure to languages, senses, mind and body coordination, social interactions, and more. Designed for both parents (caregivers) and children, this immersive Mandarin class is full of fun, engagement, and interactions. Experienced teachers are native Mandarin speakers with extensive training in early childhood education. No prior Mandarin knowledge is required for this class.

Chinese Go: Collaborating with New York Institute of Go, China Institute offers Chinese Go classes for kids (5 years old and up) for the first time. Originated in China more than 4,000 years ago, Go (??Wéiqí) is one of the four supreme artistic genres in Chinese culture, with the other three being Zither playing, Calligraphy, and Painting. Throughout its long history, there has never been a single duplicate game like Go. As the oldest game still played in its original form, Go is popular among men and women at all ages. Go is a mind sport, possessing simple rules yet endless strategies. It requires a unique integration and working of analytic (left brain) and artistic (right brain) mental abilities at the same time.

Thursday Study Hall: Supervised by Chinese native speaking counselors on site, students will get help with their Chinese lessons and homework, explore the Chinese books collection, and engage in conversations with counselors and other students of Chinese language.
