Academic Chinese Classes for Children

In this group class, Children will learn to hear and understand, speak, read and write Chinese Mandarin with a focus on simplified characters. We implement a combination of teaching methods to make sure that children are learning as naturally as possible. Sessions are currently held in 80% Chinese and the children pick up the language by discussing various topics.


There are two (2) sessions from January to May and two (2) sessions from August to December.

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.
