Mandarin Program

Before-School Mandarin Class at Lawton

The five-day a week before-school Mandarin program at Lawton provides a warm and relaxed learning experience. Our teachers facilitate the children’s learning through Chinese art, songs, games, stories, and other age-appropriate activities. Students learn Mandarin just as they learn English--by living it. These classes will be taught entirely in Mandarin, so that students will be immersed in a Chinese-speaking environment. Through meaningful content and engaging activities, children will acquire Chinese fluency and the disposition to be life-long learners of the language.





ASMC Lawton Alternative branch was founded in 2012. We've been collaborating with K.E.E.P to provide safe, fun and progressive Mandarin program
