Mandarin Chinese Instruction

New Mandarin Website!

Hello Students and Families, 


I have created a new website just for Bel Aire to keep you up to date on what's happening in Mandarin classes each week.  Please visit the website


Mandarin Blossom


where you can search by grade level for activities, flash cards, videos, etc that students, teachers and families can use to review lessons, vocabulary, and pronunciation.  I'm seeing so much growth in our students and they are ready to practice independently and more frequently to continue their acquisition of Mandarin.  


Please visit the website with your child and have them show you the skills they are learning and practicing at school.  I love working with your children and look forward to seeing them each week.


Thank you,  Iting
