What we do

The transition for Chinese-speaking newcomer-immigrant students is not always easy.  Students have left behind everything they've known and been familiar with for many years to start over in a new country.  Most of the students enter with a very basic level of English and great deal of uncertainty with the American culture.  Our program gives students:

  • A firm foundation in basic English phonics
    • ABCs, blends, diagraphs
  • Idioms
  • Language focused on experiences
  • Academic language
  • American Culture knowledge
    • Holidays, education system, conversational conventions, courtesies, etc
