We are very excited to announce that we will have Chinese classes at Montessori Academy after school for Kindergarten - Middle School students. Our teacher, Ms. Fanrong Kong is a Chinese teacher at Ravenwood High School and an adjunct professor at Belmont University. She has taught K-12 Mandarin Chinese for seven years. She holds a Master’s degree in Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Language and a Bachelor’s degree in Chinese Language and Literature.
Learning Chinese is beneficial for your child's brain development and future career prospects. The written characters look like pictures, the tones sound like a song. Chinese can be a challenging language to master. But Ms. Kong will start with a fun and easy way to teach. Students will learn number, color, animal, family member, food, date, daily conversation, Chinese festival, story, song and culture.
Ms. Kong will offer two Mandarin Chinese classes per week.
The first class is open to Kindergarten through 3rd grade students and will meet on Tuesday from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
The second class is open to 4th through 8th grade students and will meet on Thursday from 3:00pm to 4:00pm.
Classes will be held in the Middle School Science Lab (in the Administration Building).
The cost is $45 a month. The classes are subject of cancellation due to low enrolment.
Please make checks payable to Fanrong Kong.
Chinese will begin September 5th (K-3rd students) and September 7th (4th-8th students).
