There are so many wonderful and unique qualities that make Seattle such a special place to call home. One of those qualities is that we have a terrific selection of Chinese schools which cater to both Chinese and non-Chinese students interested in learning about the culture and language. If you are in search of a Chinese school for your child, I strongly suggest that you consider enrolling them in one of these.
Mingyuan Evergreen Chinese School
Learn the Chinese language from the best instructors Seattle has to offer at the Mingyuan Evergreen Chinese School. Saturday classes are offered from September to June, with each semester lasting roughly 15 weeks. The school also occasionally offers a summer camp session. Students ages 3 years and up are welcome to enroll in the school. Prior to enrollment, potential students and their families can visit the school during one of their Saturday sessions to see first-hand how the classes are run.

These unique opportunities, along with their excellent teachers, is what sets ExcelMandarin apart.
What Students Are Saying About ExcelMandarin
“I’ve been studying Mandarin off and on for about 7 years, and I’ve had several different so-so Mandarin teachers along the way. But I’m now really enjoying learning Mandarin in Evan’s ExcelMandarin classes. Evan is super enthusiastic about his teaching, and he’s always trying to iterate on his teaching methods and class structure to find the most effective way to teach Mandarin.” Josh
Seattle Chinese School
Since 1966, the Seattle Chinese School has been teaching the Seattle community the fine art of the Chinese language. Each Saturday, three-hour long classes are held at Interlake High School where students and teachers have access to state-of-the-art classroom technology. With 17 different courses offered, from preschool age children to advanced learners, there is something for everyone at the Seattle Chinese School. Those looking to learn Chinese as a second language will appreciate the smaller class sizes and in-depth coursework that teaches students to fluently speak the language as they would their native tongue.
