We are so happy to have found CCBG. The program is really the ideal blend between fun and motivation, but also with high expectations and has a true immersive instruction. It is clear that Gisela and all of the teachers put a lot of time and energy into crafting an incredibly thoughtful curriculum.”
This is our 4th year at CCBG and each year the curriculum continues to impress. New projects, calligraphy, shows and trips are building very well rounded students, and friendships are built through the CCBG family.
The CCBG teachers have inspired my otherwise shy daughter to try and speak Chinese more. I look forward to many more years at CCBG, watching my children grow and learn there.
Every child learns differently, the teachers at CCBG hone in on the idiosyncrasies of each child and apply various teaching techniques to promote a positive learning experience. What ensues is an elevated level of confidence in students that fosters continual interest in a seemingly daunting area of study.
