Summer Ya Ya 2024

Click through the photos in the slideshow above to get a glimpse of the unforgettable Mandarin learning experiences we have created for our children from the past summers!

Run by veteran educators for more than 15 years and counting, Summer Ya Ya stands as the premier destination for children seeking immersive Mandarin language learning experiences in the summertime. Well-known for our thorough and meticulously planned topic studies, Ya Ya teachers are trained experts in guiding our children through super fun and engaging hands-on activities with meaningful contexts.

After a highly successful study of the 'Beauty of Taiwan: Formosa Island' last summer, this year, we will embark on an imaginary journey with our children to explore the diverse landscape of China. Each session will delve into various aspects: the fascinating indigenous animals of China, the breathtaking sceneries and majestic landmarks, the culinary wonders of different regions, and the vibrant blend of old and modern in Shanghai.
