Event Classes

Rather than vigorous testing schedules and goals, we prefer to have fun-filled event classes where the students can use the Chinese they know freely to participate in various activities. Yes, even through the screen. A special party with different students and teachers is a great way to make our children feel like a part of the Key Babel community! Sure, we work hard; and that's precisely why we can play hard.
