Instructor: Brendan Brown Grades: 1-5 Day & Time: Wednesdays, 3:15-4:15 This club will give Lower School students the opportunity to learn and practice Mandarin with each other and with the instructor. Students will learn through thematic lessons each week. We will learn through games, singing, dancing, and other fun activities. We will also learn interesting cultural topics along the way. This is a wonderful way for students to gain extra practice with their Mandarin in an exciting and supportive environment. 加油! My name is Brendan Brown. I am a current graduate student at the University of Oregon. I am a student teacher this year for the Upper School teaching Mandarin. I have lived the last four years in China and Taiwan. For two years I was a teacher for 1st and 3rd graders. I really love working with younger students and I am extremely happy to be at Oak Hill School this year! I think the students will have a great time learning about Chinese culture and language and reaching our goals!
