The Chong Wa School is the oldest Chinese school in Washington state. The school is located in Seattle’s Chinatown, at the Chong Wa Hall. The building was originally established in 1929 as an opera house, yet classrooms for the Chong Wa School were already built-in in the basement of the building. The School was operated by Chong Wa Benevolent Association until 1973, when it was transferred to Chong Wa Education Society as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The School aims to enhance the adult Mandarin program and established the Taiwan Center for Mandarin Learning (TCML) in 2023. The TCML teaches Mandarin as a second language for adults aged 18 years and above.
Learning Mandarin is an important global trend and there is an increasing demand for Mandarin programs all over the world. The course contents of the Chong Wa School is based on the textbook “Let’s Learn Mandarin” edited by the Overseas Community Affairs Council. This text book follows foreign language teaching concepts. Students learn vocabulary needed in their daily life through natural dialogue, and also through the added contents of Taiwanese culture and cuisine. We hope that through cultural teaching, Mandarin teaching will not provide only as an essential tool for communication, but also as a means to understand other ethnic groups, which may in turn result in mutual reciprocal and trusting friendships.
Chong Wa School is located at the CWBA Building in Seattle Chinatown, nearby downtown of Seattle where transportation is very convenient.
