Children's Programs

Parent and Child Chinese Class

The Confucius Institute offers an Introduction to Chinese language and culture for parents and young children (ages 4-8.). Learn Standard Chinese (Mandarin) phrases, songs, poems and games that you can practice with your child. Parents will be given guidance on ways to reinforce the language lessons at home. Children must enroll and attend with an adult. A parent or responsible adult must be with each child at all times.

Children's Summer Camps

Science & Chinese Language Camp students will explore scientific concepts and learn basic Chinese terms and phrases. They will study the life cycle of the butterfly in Chinese. In addition to butterfly-themed activities, students will learn basic Chinese language terms and phrases. They will focus on the life cycle of the butterfly with additional activi­ties, including age-appropriate research and observation activities.

Whether your child is new to Chinese or has studied it before, this camp will teach your child to comprehend and speak Chinese, or improve their current skill level, and will give them the opportunity to explore the natural world of butterflies in Kansas.
