History The Canberra Community Chinese School was established in 1981 under the name East Asian Art Society Chinese School. The school is the oldest Chinese Language School in Canberra providing Chinese language classes catering for children and young adults. The school is incorporated as a non-profit community organisation where the parents fully participate in the running of the school. The new school name reflects the changing environment.
Other Information Classes are held in normal classrooms to provide a safe and secure environment for children from the age of 4 to14. The children are taught to read and write simple Chinese characters based on the Pinyin system. The teacher to student ratio is low to ensure interaction in the classroom. English is used as the teaching medium so that communication can be maintained. Therefore it is most suitable for children coming from a non-Chinese speaking background.

Adult classes are targeted for young adults who wish to study Chinese as a second language. In 2014 both beginner and advance levels can be offered if enrolment reaches a minimum number. Please contact the school for details.

It is now also the language of the most numerous minority migrant community group in Australia. China is also the largest trading partner of Australia.
Help your child take advantage of the Asian Century. Learning Mandarin will give them great opportunities in their adult life and increase their chances of success.
