Mission Statement

At Su Yun’s Chinese Learning Center, our mission is to blend the teaching of Chinese heritage with a touch of modern innovation through a project-based, design-thinking methodology for students in grades K-5. Utilizing the latest in technology, science, engineering, and math (STEM) as teaching vehicles, Su Yun’s Chinese Learning Center aims to immerse students in the Mandarin language through authentic Chinese arts, music, history, folklore, food, and other genuine experiences, with a goal to inspire students to be inquisitive and thoughtful.

Teaching Philosophy

We live in a digitally connected, global era. Children today will have new challenges when they reach the workforce. Learning to read, write, and speak Mandarin will provide these children with a competitive edge in the future. Additionally, the Chinese culture is an ancient and beautiful culture that can be taught through language. We understand that learning a language unto itself is not enough for most children. There needs to be something else; something else to draw and engage children to create a self motivation to learn Chinese. We believe this can be accomplished through progressive and project-based learning, utilizing STEM-related activities but with the Chinese language in support.


我们生活在一个全球化数字时代,当今的孩子长大将面临新的挑战。熟练使用中文(阅读,写作和讲普通话)将为这些孩子带来更大的竞争优势。另外,我们将通过语言学习教授古老而美丽的中国文化。 单纯的语言学习是不够的。我们将使用渐进的基于活动项目的学习方法,以中文配合STEM活动来激励孩子们主动学习中文。
