"Our daughter is 3 years old and has started attending the Wei Lin Chinese School in October 2016. The lessons are taught in a very enthusiastic way, with great focus and attention paid to the child. The lessons are very interactive, which keeps all the children engaged for the 45 minutes, which is no mean feat for an age range of 18 months to 3 years old. The practical element of the class is a great idea, and Rosa brings in plenty of objects for the children to physically handle that relate to the pictures for the topic of that week. Rosa has a very friendly and engaging persona, which makes the children feel comfortable very quickly and this can be seen in their confidence as they engage and listen to her for the lesson. Rosa communicates the specific word through a method of repetition, utilising the practical and interactive element very effectively, and this is demonstrated by the children in the class as they identify the picture or object from the Chinese word. In addition to this there is song, dance and a story in every lesson, and our daughter always has a smile on her face in the class, which is a true testament to Rosa's teaching."

我们家两个孩子从文麟学校一开办就报名学习中文班,算算也有近一年的时间了。 在文麟学校短短的一年时间里学校一直都在以最好的状态去教导孩子们, 让孩子们能够对中文产生更多的兴趣。 到目前为止 婷婷和涵杰的中文水平进步的很快, 会识字认字, 在学校也认识了好多好朋友。当然一开始我也是有所退缩, 毕竟这是在英国, 孩子们每天说最多的还是英文,只能说是抱着试试的态度。 孩子目前能有这样的成绩我真的很欣慰。不仅是校长每天都在密切的关注每一个孩子的学习, 就是甘老师也在每次课程之后与家长交心的探讨孩子们的学习状况,每一次都在跟进孩子们的作业。积极的解决孩子们的问题。 很幸运我们家附近有这样好的一所中文学校。祝文麟学校越办越好。"


"Both our children have been studying Chinese at WenLin Chinese School since they’ve opened. In very short time, my children have learnt how to read and write in Chinese and have developed strong interests in learning Chinese. The school always give us their best attention and effort in teaching our children. I am so pleased to see their progress in learning Chinese. Not only the school principal care so closely on each child’s learning, but also Miss. Gan the class teacher always chat to us after each class about how our children have learnt in the class and how they did for their homework. They always find best way to help my children to learn. We are very lucky that we live so close to such a good Chinese school. Wish WenLin Chinese will do better and better."

"Rosa works incredibly hard to put together thoughtful and engaging sessions for the children. She has a kind and gentle manner and makes sure each child gets individual attention. Our daughter Lia seems to thoroughly enjoy the classes and is growing in confidence with each session. We're really happy that something like this exists so close to home. Thank you Rosa :-) "
