Chinese Department

At Wesley, we are developing global citizens to be engaged and active in the world. We recognize the advantages of learning a second language, including increased cognitive function, strengthened problem-solving skills, and broader social connections.

Bilingualism can also be an advantage for students entering the global marketplace in the future. Roughly a billion people in the world speak Mandarin Chinese, and it is the official language of China, Taiwan, and Singapore. It has become increasingly popular as a second language study in the United States, including with celebrities such as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Wesley’s Chinese Program

Our Chinese program is well-known and respected throughout Georgia for its commitment to students’ language proficiency, cultural knowledge, and global perspective. Students in all grades receive 45 minutes of daily Chinese instruction from state-certified Mandarin teachers. Our curriculum includes listening, speaking, reading and writing. Teachers incorporate music, songs, movement, writing exercises, art, and projects into their classroom experience.
