Located in Los Angeles, California, Ni Hao Chinese was founded with less than 20 students in the fall of 2012. Ni Hao has flourished to an organization with over 2000 students and more than 70 passionate teaching professionals.
Making sure that our students feel home and build a memorable experience to take with them as they become our future and providing the best language.
SMART Learning Model
We have developed our own proprietary materials and teaching methods, which are aligned with a Common Core approach through Spiral Learning. Students will learn new material as well as review old material during each lesson.
We have many ways to encourage your child to both learn and have fun. One of these methods is the “Hao Bao Bao” card reward system for students who actively participate during class and finish homework.
At Ni Hao, a teacher’s role is not only to teach but also to analyze how each student responds. We provide constant feedback to both students and parents to improve the learning experience.
We utilize techniques from studies and theories in fields such as learning and memory, developmental psychology, education, and motivation to not only help children learn the material in class but also aid in long-term retention.
Total Physical Response
This is especially crucial in an immersion setting for children, as it mimics the natural development process at a young age. Physical interactions such as gestures are incorporated into the formation of language and communication skills.
At Ni Hao, we believe that it is the incorporation of all aspects of the SMART model that will provide for optimum language acquisition. Our program combines materials, instructors, teaching methods, and a classroom environment to maximize effectiveness. In addition, we actively engage with parents and guardians to provide Chinese materials for additional reinforcement at home.
We are constantly finding ways to improve our programs, including using our professionals to publish the Ni Hao Chinese language books series. Our teachers have many years of experience and education in teaching Chinese, as well as being trained and certified in the use of our SMART learning model.
We offer auxiliary classes such as music, art, dance, martial arts, as well as a free weekly cultural day to enhance your child’s learning opportunities. We also incorporate these methods into our regular programs.
Ni Hao believes that in addition to learning how to speak and write in a language, one must also have a knowledge and appreciation of the culture that uses it. We promote Chinese virtues, Chinese poems, and Chinese arts. This knowledge is also invaluable when interacting with native speakers.
Ni Hao utilizes many technologies to help children learn Chinese. These include the use of computer programs, optical pens, flash cards, and other audio-visual aids, to name but a few. We hope to bring the best to your child so that they retain a lifelong interest in learning Chinese.
” We have also developed a series of immersion textbooks for younger children, mini storybooks for preschoolers along with a structured curriculum, reading books for young children, as well as AP materials for older students. We continuously apply the latest theories to real-life instruction. We strive to provide the best information and knowledge for our Ni Hao Chinese students. This is and has always been, our promise. Please come join us at Ni Hao Chinese. Let us grow with you. Let us grow for you. Let us change the world, one student at a time.”
