Starts Friday, September 15th at 10:00am-10:45am
Series Dates: September 15, 22, 29 & October 6
Babies start to “talk” almost immediately after their births. Their language skills continue to develop as they begin to explore with their body. In the series, we will celebrate the excitement of our young ones’ newly acquired physical and linguistic abilities through various gross motor activities.
One adult must accompany each child, and actively participate in activities with each child throughout the class. The class will be taught in full Chinese immersion style. There is no prior language experience necessary, although adults will learn to speak Mandarin Chinese during the class.

About Peng Zeng, Founder & Lead Teacher of Playlingual: Peng is a Mandarin Chinese teacher, consultant and voice actor. She has over 10 years of experience in all aspects of Mandarin Chinese language education in the States. In 2008, she started exploring ways to integrate progressive early childhood educational approaches, such as the Reggio Emilia and Montessori approaches, to Mandarin Chinese education to young children, which eventually led to the birth of Playlingual methods. Playlingual believes children grow their interest in languages and develop their linguistic skills through hands-on and interactive activities with adults who understand how to follow children’s interests in the target language.
