OUR STORY

"YouLe is founded by a team of educators and parents. We share the hopes and aspirations of giving our young ones the best chance for future success by nurturing in them a love for learning, a growth mindset and confidence to navigate this ever-changing and increasingly bicultural world. We believe this is best done when children are primed for learning in their early years.

With our diverse range of expertise in language milestones development, whole-brain training and early childhood education, our mission is to help stimulate our students’ interests in Mandarin from early childhood and endow them with the best foundation to bring their Mandarin learning to greater heights."

WHY LEARN MANDARIN AT YOULE?

Best all-rounded Chinese Enrichment

What makes our Mandarin enrichment classes different from others?

Many established Chinese tuition centres aim to teach their students character recognition and sentence reading through rote learning in the early years, by simplifying their primary school's programme and infusing "fun" elements. However, these pedagogies are un-informed by the latest studies in early childhood education, and the students are unable to use the language fluently or in new contexts. With the new change in primary school syllabus, this means students are unable to perform well in non-test-based assessment, hence leading to disinterest and low morale. 

At YouLe, we believe that in the early critical years, students are primed to go way beyond simply learning Chinese characters. We challenge our students to not just gain an ability to recognise and read Chinese words, but the ability to confidently pronounce them and love using the language in fluid and interesting ways. Besides priming them for the more qualitative assessment in primary schools, the communication skills they learn will be immensely useful for them in the future! 

So.. how do we achieve our goals?

HAPPY PARENTS & STUDENTS

YouLe really believes in learning through fun activities and doesn’t force the kids to do rote learning which definitely would put kids off. I highly recommend YouLe's Mandarin enrichment classes for kids ranging from toddlers to preschoolers and anyone who is looking into having their kids speak good and proper Mandarin.

At YouLe's Mandarin classes for kids, Mandarin comes alive with multi-sensory stimulation, inspirational Chinese poems, flash cards, drama, song and dance, hands on creative activities for the children to stay engaged throughout the session.. To be honest, I myself am renewing my love for the language!

Evangeline (Shiloh's Mum)

Our daughter Camille has been attending YouLe since the age of 17 months.  At first we were unsure whether a child could benefit from the enrichment classes at such a young age, but after seeing the results, we wish we had started even earlier.

YouLe has helped Camille’s development in many areas beyond Mandarin skills.  The Mandarin classes have boosted her confidence in interacting with other children and adults.  She has also shown increased appreciation of music, dance and storytelling.

We recommend YouLe wholeheartedly to every parent.  We will be enrolling Camille’s newborn brother as soon as he is old enough!
