About Our Language School

Welcome to Morning Tree Language Centre Where Learning Has No Bounds.

Our Vision

Our vision is to become a leading provider of high-quality, reputable language education centre for students ages 3 to 14 who best excel in a challenging, fully immersive, enriching and hands-on environment.

Mission Statement

Our mission at Morning Tree Language Centre is to provide a rich and engaging multi-lingual learning experience full of imagination, creativity, discovery, and joy.

晨樹語言中心成立於2019年6月,我們的初衷旨在為母語為非中文的小朋友提供一個豐富有趣,寓教於樂的普通話學習環境。從不會講到開口說,從四個聲調到組詞造句,深入淺出,一個個互動的小遊戲,一次次登臺的自我表達,這些之前完全不懂中文的小朋友學會了拼音,認識了生字,读懂了餐厅的中文菜单,聽懂了成語的小故事。 我們見證了孩子的中文之旅,沒有沉重的死記硬背和家庭作業,學習中文其實是一個充滿未知與樂趣的探索過程,這也正是我們學習一門新的語言的意義所在,為我所用。

Out of all the after-school programs we signed up for our daughter, she loves the Mandarin class at Morning Tree Language Center the most. The teachers make each class fun and engaging. She can't wait until the next term.

Anita has been very competent in tutoring children in Mandarin for several years. My grandchildren enjoy her classes and remain interested in learning more. I am very satisfied with my grandchildren's progress in Mandarin due to Anita's creative teaching method.

Anita is so good at what she does. She brings enthusiasm and fun to each and every class, and teaches our girls the practical language that makes them want to share their progress. They are non-Chinese speakers and they are learning useful words and phrasing to impress their grandparents! We are so happy with their interest in learning with Anita. Thank you!!

I was searching for a Chinese school for my daughter to learn Mandarin. I went to visit a couple of schools in Richmond. A friend told me about Morning Tree and it seemed different so I let my daughter try. I am so happy that my friend told me about it and my daughter really enjoys going! She has been attending for about 6 months now and is learning a lot. Anita does such an amazing job making the Mandarin classes fun and engaging. I highly recommend them!

K. Mar
My son has been with Morning Tree Language Centre for over 1 year now. He loves going there every week for his Mandarin and French classes because of their fun classroom environment. We are trying to speak more Mandarin at home, and we are glad to see his Mandarin conversation and vocabulary improved. We look forward to the new topics they teach this Winter term.
