MONDAYS
16: 30-17: 30 A crouching tiger, a hidden dragon. We invite children from 1.5 years to 4 years old, you can also come with a baby who will listen to the language. Great fun, fairy tales, games, singing, art classes. Does it sound like a science? And yet in this way, we will get used to the most difficult language of the world – Chinese. Your child, like Marco Polo, will become the discoverer of the Far East. We will use various techniques of art therapy, hortitherapy and music therapy. It’s best to start making friends with Chinese as soon as possible due to its tonality. Immerse your child in listening to speech and songs in Chinese before the third year of life, as the researchers say, will significantly facilitate the subsequent learning of this difficult language, maybe even develop bilingualism.
