Online After-school Program Date and Time   We encourage students to take our in-person classes. However, for those who prefer online learning or who doesn't have the transportation to the school site, you can take our online Chinese classes. The date and time for the online classes can be determined by the needs from most of the students. We will follow up with parents on your preferred date and time before the school starts.
