My Man­darin Lab

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Learning -

The Club, 1 Club Drive, Ban­dar Utama, PJ (018 370 2436/ my­man­darin­lab.com.my). De­spite hav­ing just opened its doors in Septem­ber 2015, this new tu­ition cen­tre is al­ready run­ning classes on a daily ba­sis. Staffed by highly-ex­pe­ri­enced teach­ers from main­land China, the cen­tre runs its own trade­mark kids pro­gramme called Mag­icHan. Xuhuan, one of My Man­darin Lab’s founders, said that the com­pany’s main ob­jec­tive is to ‘re­move the fear of learn­ing Man­darin, which is of­ten per­ceived as an ex­tremely dif­fi­cult lan­guage.’ Sign­ing up for the Mag­icHan pro­gramme en­ti­tles stu­dents to spe­cially for­mat­ted ex­er­cise books, flash cards, spe­cial an­i­ma­tions and pic­to­rial plac­ards. The vis­ual for­mat of Mag­icHan’s learn­ing ma­te­rial serves as a short­cut for stu­dents to speed­ily re­call Chi­nese char­ac­ters. Af­ter mas­ter­ing the Mag­icHan syl­labus, kids will move on to the Young Teenagers group, the HSK (Hanyu Shuip­ing Kaoshi/ Chi­nese Stan­dard Exam) or the IGCSE (In­ter­na­tional Gen­eral Cer­tifi­cate of Sec­ondary Ed­u­ca­tion) lev­els. My Man­darin Lab’s safe en­vi­ron­ment makes it a suit­able haven for work and play. Low basins and toi­lets were built keep­ing lit­tle ones in mind, the li­brary is cosy and colour­ful, and there is a play­ground on the premises. Mon-Tue & Thu-Sun, 10am-1pm, 4-9.30pm. Mag­icHan, 4-6 years old; Young Teenagers, 7 years and above. Con­tact cen­tre for fees and sched­ules. Dec 1-3. 10am-12noon. RM180 per stu­dent.
