It is part of the benefits to live in Hong Kong and expose our children with Mandarin. Kids who are younger than 6 can learn a language so much easier than us. Thus, putting them in Mandarin immersion will be very beneficial to them. Parents who don't know Chinese can hire tutors to help at home. Don't waste the opportunity for your kids to learn Mandarin while you're here. MSL Centers, used to be BetterChinese, has 17 years of teaching Mandarin in Hong Kong. My kids has been going there for the past 5 years for after school mandarin program. They can also help finding a highly qualified teacher to teach at home. Their principal of the school is very nice, you can reach her at 9205 4057.
