Chia 奇亚 

Each child is a chia seed full of possibilities that can bloom incredible flowers.

We believe that every child is like chia seed, a superfood that can absorb up to 12 times its weight. Children absorb limitless language skills and cultural understanding through immersive learning, content-based learning with meaningful cultural exposures. With our methods, we are raising globally competitive superstars.

If you add an "n" in the middle of the word Chia, you get China! The children learn and grow together in a Chinese learning community, preparing for a trip to China one day.

Chia Chinese Learning's mission is to support learners to confidently and culturally succeed in a multicultural, fast-changing environment through comprehensive Chinese language and culture learning.

Join Chia's Chinese class and explore the fabulous world of becoming a global citizen!

A peek at our lessons

As a part of our lesson routine, we always start with circle meetings using greetings and basic conversation in Chinese. We also check our daily Chinese calendar, the weather, our feelings, any special days or holidays, learn popular Chinese songs, do movements and plays, and enjoy Chinese stories, all to provide a cultural context for Chinese immersion learning.
