About the School:

The Chinese Language School of CCCNJ was established in the early seventies, and is a non-profit organization run by the parents of the students. The goals of the school are to teach verbal (Cantonese) and written skills of the Chinese language, and to educate children in the cultural values of the Chinese heritage.

Due to Covid-19, all classes will be conducted virtually via Zoom sessions until futher notice.  Please review the above Welcome Letter and Registration Form for details on registration.                                                                                                                                                       
Cantonese classes: 10 AM - 11:40 AM with a 20 minute break from 10:40 AM - 11 AM.                                                                                                   Adult Mandarin classes: Beginner 9:15 AM - 10:45 AM.    Intermediate/Advanced: 10:45 AM - 12:15 PM.

When we are able to return in person:
Classes are held at the church.  The school hours are from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., on Saturdays, during the months of September through June.  Optional extra curricular activities are offered, such as the Youth Group (Lion Dance), Chinese Cultural Dancing, Cooking, and Coding classes.

Officers of the school are parents elected by other parents.  All parents participate in the administration of the school, and are requested to join in committees, such as education, programming, social activities, etc.  These committees provide planning, and create a positive learning environment for the children.

The school conducts classes from pre-kindergarten to sixth grade. The classes are held in Cantonese, with a minimum of English when necessary.  The adoption of Cantonese is preferred to meet the large population of Chinese families who are of Cantonese background. Students are assigned to classes not by their ages, but by their competency in the Chinese language.  All children, ages 4 years and up, are welcome to enroll.  In addition, there is a Mandarin conversation class offered to adults and student graduates.  Please feel free to visit the school on Saturdays during school hours to meet the students, teachers, and parents (when we are able to return in person).

The Chinese Language School offers an excellent opportunity for children to learn Cantonese and to meet people of the same heritage.  By participating in the school and CCCNJ activities, everyone will certainly enjoy seeing cultural growth, and develop warm and lasting friendships.
