CSL Program 05-31-2013

To All CSL Parents,

Thanks for a great school year! Have a great and safe summer. Remember to continue to pass the word around about the CSL classes. Please feel free to send new interested parents to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and someone will contact you shortly.

One last thing, continue to practice Chinese with your kids so that they retain the language when they get back for the 2013-2014 school year. For parents who do not know the language, you can get online help via: quizlet.com. 

CSL Program


  • All CSL class size will be limited to 16 students per class.
  • Possible class make-up for 2013-12014 : CSL0A-- 0 to 100 hrs of learning (5-7 yrs old), CSL0B– 60 to 150 hrs of learning (6-8 yrs old), CSL1A– 120 to 220 hrs of learning (7-11 yrs old)
  • The topic of simplified characters versus traditional characters was discussed. There are less than 150 characters that are simplified. The goal is to get the kids used to traditional characters from the start and traditional characters will be introduced in more advanced levels. For AP Chinese test, both types of characters will be tested. One interesting thing to note is that China is recently transitioning back to full use of traditional Chinese characters.
