In addition to LingoAce’s certified teachers who can provide real-time feedback, this Foundation program currently focuses on children in kindergarten through 6th grade who have no prior exposure or experience with Mandarin. , with plans to expand to older grades soon. The program uses the references and standards of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Language (ACTFL) and adopts the 5-step lesson plan based on Stanford University’s World Languages ​​curriculum.

Unlike learners from Chinese-speaking households, non-heritage learners are disadvantaged because they are not exposed to the language on a daily basis.
