During the academic year, Rockville Chinese School offers classes on Sunday mornings, 10am – 12:30pm.  There are two semesters in a school year, with sixteen weeks in each semester.  Fall semester usually begins after Labor Day weekend, while Spring semester begins in late January or early February.

Language classes are taught by experienced instructors that are native mandarin speakers.   Students can start as early as preschool (4 years old) and continue through 12th grade.  Classes are available for students who speak mandarin and non-mandarin at home.

Our students have many opportunities to practice speaking mandarin, reading (pinyin and traditional characters), and writing in Chinese (traditional form).  Rockville Chinese School realizes the importance and value in exposing students to Chinese cultural alongside with learning language. Last 30 minutes in each lesson, students will have fun with cultural activities such as singing Chinese song, creating Chinese artwork, making pulp paper, performing a Chinese dance, and playing with Chinese drums.  In addition, the school often celebrate major Chinese and American holiday sessions.

To promote public speaking and Mandarin speak說話比賽, all the students will perform Chinese speech competition in the Fall Semester. 

To enforce the Chinese learning, all the students will perform “Chinese Word recognition” competition 認字比賽 in the Spring Semester.
