Description:Based on principles of second language learning, bilingualism and speech/language pathology, Mandarin Ink creates fun and engaging immersion experiences for children of all ages. Imagine learning Mandarin thru arts-n-crafts or by music, drama and movement! Here at Mandarin Ink, language lessons are delivered using activities that naturally engage even the quietest and most passive child of all. Unlike other programs, reading and writing lessons begin when children's listening comprehension and oral expression skills are well underway - making literacy skills easier to learn!. Feel free to call us for more information for our upcoming Fall semester.Appropriate for: Ages: 2 - 18 years

Mandarin Ink is over rated. Their cost is overpriced for what one gets out of it. Not only is the cost more than triple the the other r programs in the area, there is a registration fee and books & material fee which they refuse to waive. For what they charge, it is a subpar program. The program is really created for the business owners of Mandarin Ink’s children. More than half the students are their children. You are, in essence, paying for their children’s cost along with your child’s cost. The administrators are terribly disorganized. Voicemail messages are not promptly returned. Even potential customers’ calls are not returned promptly. There is also a lack of security. The bathrooms are out in the hallway. All NYC bathrooms in commercial buildings are to be locked and accessed via a key or code. Those bathroom doors are never locked. Anyone can access the bathroom; the other businesses (and their customers) on the floor as well as anyone walking into the building. Their summer program is limited to their facility. There are no planned outdoor activities outside the 2 classrooms. The children are practically cooped up within the facility. Food, drinks and snacks are not provided as well. Other programs within the neighborhood do provide food.

There are no scheduled events.
