Northfield's First Community Chinese School To Offer Courses This Fall

Northfield, Minn.— Did you see the Olympics this summer? Do you want to travel to China? Do you want to learn how to speak Chinese? Now, you will have the opportunity to learn Chinese right here in Northfield!

The Northfield Community Chinese School (NCCS) is an educational organization founded in 2008 under the auspices of IFTPA, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. In addition to providing high-quality Chinese language instruction, NCCS's mission is to promote Chinese culture and intercultural understanding and cooperation. At the current time, NCCS will offer two levels of Chinese language instruction in classes for children that also include the playing of Chinese games and the singing of Chinese songs, and two classes for adults.

The Northfield Community Chinese School will begin offering Mandarin Chinese this fall beginning Saturday, September 13. The students will meet once a week throughout the school year. We plan to use the textbooks Standard Chinese I for students with no Chinese background (K-5) and New Practical Chinese Reader II for students with Chinese language background (6-12). Parents will also have the opportunity to study alongside their children. NCCS is also offering Chinese cooking classes once a month and weekly Chinese class for business. For more information on classes, please contact NCCS at: NFLDCCS@gmail.com
