ABOUT

Lingo Bean is a multilingual education program.

Children learn languages naturally and effortlessly, and so we should not let them lose this gift. Research shows that bilingual children are much more adaptive. They tend to do much better in their education experience, and they do better on tests that have nothing to do with language at all. Please visit our Posts to read more about the benefits of early language learning.

Currently Lingo Bean offers Mandarin Chinese program. As more and more high schools are creating Chinese program, and the number of students studying Chinese in colleges dramatically increased, Lingo Bean program aims to help children to learn the most difficult language in the world at an earlier age to prepare them for the global economy. We commit to meet students' various learning needs. Our programs include Parents and Me Class, Preschool Class, Afterschool Class, Private Lessons and Online Lessons.

 
 

Lingo Bean promotes cultural diversity and understanding, enriches children's brain and opens their minds for global awareness. As Global Education is a must for the 21st century, our goal is to foster children's curiosity to foreign languages and cultures.

WHY LEARN CHINESE
President Obama announced 1 million strong: Goal to increase k-12 American students to learn Chinese in the next five years, by 2020. As indicated in the analytic report of the 100k Strong Foundation, that the One Million Strong Initiative “is aimed at exposing a generation of Americans to their Chinese counterparts. It is about breeding knowledge and understanding of China, its policies and its people. And it is about creating opportunities for American youth—regardless of background or circumstances—for careers both at home and abroad.”(Carola McGiffert, 2015) Visit the website to find out more: http://100kstrong.org/ In the past twenty years, lots of American young people with good Chinese language skills have found excellent opportunities for themselves, and this is just the beginning. Our children are growing fast. We should not let them miss this learning opportunity. Let us make some effort together to help them learn this very important language in the 21 century.

TESTIMONIAL
Over a year ago, at the end of 6th grade, our daughter started studying Mandarin with Hua Lin. Ms. Lin’s curriculum uniquely combines one-on-one tutorials, online learning, hard copy textbook exercises and experiential adventures in Chinese language and culture. Though our schedule only allows for one lesson each week, our daughter has made great progress because of Ms. Lin’s engaging, interactive and entertaining teaching strategies and skills, as well as her warm and supportive personality. Well into her second year of her Mandarin studies, our daughter continues to enjoy the challenges Ms. Lin presents to her. We highly recommend Ms. Lin to any parent considering having their child study Mandarin. In short, we think Ms. Lin is Hua-nderful!
