“Ellie absolutely loves ChiFUNese. The use of songs and visuals has really made it an enjoyable educational experience for her.”
— Eleanor Thornton, mum of Ellie Johnson (6), Clovelly P.S.
“My two children have been attending a weekly ChiFUNese lesson for several years. It has astounded me the progress they have made and I am very proud of their achievements. If you are interested in Mandarin classes for your children where they actually learn but have fun at the same time then you can’t go past ChiFUNese.
— Ruth Cowan, mother of Scarlett (10) and Barnaby (7) Scott, Darlinghurst P.S.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for running such an incredibly fun and educational program for Justin. He has developed a keen interest in mandarin and he enjoys your class immensely. I really did not expect such enthusiasm from him for the program. You have done a marvellous job.”
— Margaret Cheng, mum of Justin Cheng (8), St Philip Neri Catholic Primay School.
“Madeleine comes home with excitement each week and tells me what she has learned in class. She says they play games, learn new words each week and she loves the activities. It is lovely to see her enjoying Mandarin and using some of the words at home. Thank you ChiFUNese.”
— Lisa Wong, mum of Madeleine Parkes (7), Beauty Point P.S.
“Just want to say a huge THANK YOU !! as the girls are really enjoying their classes and Cynthia (the teacher) is brilliant making the classes fun and they are learning lots !!”
— Melinda Lum, mum of Chloe (7) and Annelise (5) McCormick, Cammeray P.S.
“Lachie has thoroughly enjoyed the Chinese lessons at Cammeray P.S. with ChiFUNese. He has attended a variety of Chinese lessons in Sydney and this has been the best one. The small class sizes and keenness of the students contribute to a very positive learning environment. I have also appreciated the online resources and printed material which have been very helpful in focussing his attention when working at home.”
— Evelyn Scott, mum of Lachlan Chan (7), Cammeray P.S.
“My daughter loved her holiday program with ChiFUNese and her comfort with the language increased significantly. I was worried that, being in Kindy, she would be bored. Well, was I wrong – she came home not only with smilies but arts and crafts, stories of being a dragon, doing Kung Fu, and drinking tea. Most important, she had a better understanding that speaking chinese opens the door to doing lots of fun, cool things.”
— Martha Fetner, mum of Joann Fetner, 5, St Andrews Cathedral School.
“Thanks for a great week last week… Saxon absolutely loved attending the (holiday) program. We enjoyed looking at the photos you put up on Facebook too. He is looking forward to the next term of classes and remarked ‘I can’t wait till I am fluent in Mandarin!'”
— Jo Dean, mum of Saxon Dean, 6, Bourke St P.S.
