Our Winter Language Programs In China
Winter always brings around a vibe of excitement and cheeriness that everyone welcomes. For kids, the last ring of the spring term school bell signals more than just the start of playtime. It’s an indication of adventure, fun and exciting things ahead! For the parents, there is almost an unspoken pressure to find an activity that is not only fun, but also enriching for their children.
Sure, that Snowboard Camp was fun last summer and that Ski Marathon program was interesting, but do you want to send your kids to the same camps again? Maybe yes. But what if there is a new, alternative way to keep your children active and engaged during the winter holiday?
This is where we will introduce our Chinese Winter Camp Programs for kids. It’s a camp that focuses on building your children’s Chinese language skills and their understanding of the Chinese culture. Not only that, children will also get to play, do sports and create arts & crafts in our program. It’s an all-in-one summer program for kids, except in Chinese!

What is Chinese Winter Camp?
As the name indicated, it’s a winter camp that focuses on everything Chinese. The Chinese Winter Camp is held every year in China (Beijing & Shanghai) for foreign kids who want to experience the Chinese culture and learn or improve their Mandarin skills.
What Are The Benefits Of Your Kids Joining Oner Of Our Winter Language Programs?
Learn a new culture
Apart from the Chinese linguistic skills that they will acquire, they will forge a better understanding of the Chinese culture. Subconsciously, their tolerance level towards a culture that is different from theirs will grow.
That’s Mandarin’s Chinese Winter Camp is about Chinese language lessons and more! There are activities planned especially to keep the children active and fit, like soccer, pingpong, rock climbing and kungfu… to name a few.
As part of the Winter Camp program, children have a chance to try their hands at Chinese arts & crafts, something that they probably don’t get to do back in their home countries. Activities like paper cutting, painting a Chinese opera mask, making Chinese knots, bean arts, etc. The list is endless. The number of activities they will get to do will depend on the number of weeks they sign up for.
Sightsee and explore new places
Students can choose to join the Chinese Winter Camp in Beijing or Shanghai. No matter which city they select, they will have a chance to explore the city and visit some famous attractions and landmarks. It’s an important part of their Chinese education as there will be activities during the field trips which will require them to practice what they’ve learned by conversing with the locals.
