FAQ
    Q1:How are students divided?
    A:There are 2 age groups in the Mandarin Summer Camp – 7-9 years old and 10-13 years old.  There is a placement test before classes start in which students will be placed into 3 different levels (Basic, Intermediate and Advance) according to the test results.  Textbooks and class activities are both arranged according to different age groups.  There are around 15 students in each class.
     
     
    Q2:If we sign up for two sessions together, will the learning content overlap?
