Great fun, fairy tales, games, singing, art classes. Does it sound like learning? And yet in this way we will familiarize ourselves with the most difficult language in the world – Chinese. Your child, like Marco Polo, will become the discoverer of the Far East. We will use different types of art therapy, horti therapy and music therapy techniques. We will acquire skill in Chinese knots, zhézhǐ and Japanese origami, among others. We'll see how the tea ceremony in China differs from that of Japanese. We will learn how to read and write Chinese characters, how to grow your own bonsai tree (pénzāi), how to arrange ikebana. We will play wéiqí and Chinese chess.
