    Hello all! I finally have some answers. I can move the age range down to 7 (some 6 years old do fine, too), but this class was set up for the older child. I will consult with the teacher on offering a class for younger children. I added the teacher's bio to the description and she will be using a workbook created by Academic Learning & Languages. Please let me know if there are more questions. Thank you!

    Who is the teacher? Is there a reason we aren't including under 9?

      My son is 3 and my daughter is 5 (will be 6 in October). I was curious mostly because they are already learning a bit from their grandma. My husband is Chinese and so learning Mandarin would be a great asset not only for their future but for family as well.

      Our experience is that children 3 and 5 would do much better in a play based class or activity. You might want to find a Mommy Mandarian and Me like Global Noodle has) 9+ aged benefit from being with with similar ages and abilities when it comes to language learning.

    I am interested in the teacher's credentials and the age restriction as well (I have a five year old with Chinese language experience, besides a nine year old). Also, which textbook would be used? Thanks!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
