ALD’s Mandarin Immersion Class’ unique and innovative curriculum is tailor made for
students of all backgrounds to effectively
learn Mandarin reading, writing, and
conversation. For students from preschool to high school, the class' wide array of engaging learning activities and strategies keep students interested and self-motivated to learn and retain Chinese language.

All ALD programs are taught in modern collaborative and interactive learning environments to encourage analysis, discussion, and critical thinking. ALD's amazing facilities were designed by an award winning team of architects specifically to encourage Chinese language learning.
ALD students are constantly demonstrating amazing examples of creativity and technical writing skills. Some elementary aged ALD students are able to perform at near Advanced Placement levels!
ALD supplements traditional teaching methods with a constantly changing array of context based interactive activities that will help children learn and retain Chinese language, culture, history, and diversity, such as:
A unique feature of ALD's program is the small class format. Unlike most other Chinese schools which feature large classes or mixed level classes, ALD's students are grouped into small classes based on age and ability. Each student receives caring individualized instruction, and each parent receives a personalized feedback and a communication bulletin at the end of each class session.
ALD's staff will discuss the appropriate age/ability class level with you during your school visit.
Our Mandarin Immersion Class focuses on reading and writing. In addition, we offer a Practical Conversation Class to supplement to our regular Mandarin Immersion Class to reinforce speaking skills.
The Practical Conversation Class includes our own illustrated lesson book that is divided into a series of lessons starting with basic greetings and introductions and then progresses through various daily tasks and social situations.
