Ni hao! Our Founder, Dawna Leung was featured in BRW Online this month. Click here for more details.

What started as a small immersion-based Chinese playgroup for her two young sons Leo and Quon, where a handful of little ones could learn Mandarin with their parents, has now expanded into a network of over 21 classrooms and 800 students.

According to Leung, the success of the program has been purely down to the hard working, passionate and dedicated team of teachers that she works with. ‘The team I work with are passionate, creative and open to new ways of thinking when it comes to teaching Mandarin to our students. We, as a team, work hard to ensure that we research and develop on an ongoing basis how to teach Mandarin to children. Our program is very emergent and our franchisees and Program Development Team meet weekly to share ideas, develop new lesson plans and teaching material and ensure that we offer a first class Mandarin program for children here in Australia.’
