NCCS was founded in 1979. We are the oldest Mandarin Chinese School in San Diego, providing classes from Pre-K and K-12 grades, and also to adults. Our mission is to educate Mandarin native speakers and those learning Mandarin as a second language through the language and cultural activities with the best program designs available. We have succeeded in promoting and supporting Mandarin to be included in the mainstream education system.
In November of 2022, the Overseas Community Affairs Council (OCAC) of Taiwan approved the establishment of the San Diego Taiwan Center for Mandarin Learning (SD-TCML) to promote Mandarin teaching and learning in San Diego. The opening ceremony of the TCML is scheduled to be held at the end of June 2023.
The TCML offers classes to adults (18 years and over). Textbooks used in the program are “Let’s Learn Mandarin”, “Speak Mandarin in 500 Words”, and “Speak Mandarin in 1000 Words”, published by the OCAC of Taiwan, and accompanied with “theme based” topics. The course curriculum includes daily life conversations, traditional culture, customs, festivals … etc. So, students are not just learning language, but also understanding culture.
Each session lasts over a period of 9-12 weeks, and meets 3 to 4 hours per week.
