Home - About AAMA
To offer high-quality education, the AAMA develops its own teaching curriculum and
teacher training system. In this case, our students can enjoy the same high-quality
learning experience using our consistent curriculum, regardless of different locations
and levels.

Our students are expected to meet their friendly and highly experienced teachers in a
small size class. Our professional educators are always ready to lead their students to
discover the fun of exploring the world of Chinese.

The All About Mandarin programs have entered many public and private schools for
their before/after school programs and during school classes. The AAMA’s educational
partners include the Del Mar School District, the San Diego Unified School District, the
Rancho Santa Fe School District, the Rhodes School, the San Diego French American
School, and more. The AAMA programs have been proven a success, and we will
continue to reach out more Chinese language and culture lovers and share the fun of
learning Chinese with them!

Home - About - How We Teach
By implementing songs, games, acting, and other fun activities into our classes,
we keep students engaged and excited about learning Chinese! Students often
sing popular English songs in Chinese to learn Chinese vocabulary and phrases.
They also play games to enhance their fluency of the Chinese language. All
About Mandarin uses Chinese versions of Aesop’s fables, Grimm’s fairy tales
and other well-known stories as acting material to improve students’ Chinese
language and public speaking skills. Moreover, we encourage our students to
speak Mandarin in public whenever and wherever they can. Our students
participate in skits and apply what they have learned into real life scenarios.
They also perform before crowds in parent shows which are held throughout
the year at different schools. The All About Mandarin’s low teacher to student
ratio also guarantees that every student has enough chance to practice!
