Coming for you – Ming Hui Chinese School

Greetings to the parents and friends!


Coming from foreign countries far away and overcoming numerous hardships, we all have unforgettable experiences in fulfilling our dreams. What are our sufferings and pains for then? Perhaps many of us agree that it is our children that we put in a lot of hard work for. Isn't it true? What a wonderful parents' love! The Chinese parents who, out of the five-thousand-year-old tradition of civilization, respect elders and love children, naturally take great care of their children without any resent or regret.

Nevertheless, the United States is not always the world filled with gold that one might have imagined before. How many of us parents are not concerned about the education of our children? Indeed, in this liberal but ever-changing country, it is a big concern among many of our Chinese parents to ensure our children to both prevail in competitions and grow out of troubles.

No matter how far apart we are, it is the predestined relationship that brings us together. Step by step, we, the staff of Ming Hui Chinese School, are coming towards you, to share the pure land of Ming Hui Chinese School with whoever is predestined to join. Promoting the essence of the Chinese culture and emphasizing the teachings of the traditional Chinese virtue, Ming Hui Chinese School aims at the pluralistic teachings of educating children with virtue, influencing them with our own manners, and blending the fun in the education by borrowing the educational approaches of our ancestors, applying it to the present situation of our society, tailoring it to the characteristics of each individual student, and meeting the requirements of the parents.

The required classes in MHS include Chinese Language and Traditional Chinese Culture, which are two separate but related classes. The Chinese class we offer will not only stimulate the interest of the students in learning the Chinese language, but also help them grasp the Chinese knowledge through teaching the structures of Chinese characters and the Chinese Pinyin. In our Traditional Chinese Culture class,  by using the classic Chinese textbooks for beginners, "Standards for Students", and "Three Word Classic," and by telling stories of the interesting Chinese history, using simple but vivid vocabularies, and adopting lively but ordered approach, we will talk about the ancient and the present times, beginning from the mythology of how Pangu created heaven and earth, to the glorious history of China and her well-developed culture. This way, we help our children, who have been growing up in the U.S., understand the Chinese civilization and pride themselves for being Chinese descendants. To improve the efficiency of the class and to make the classroom livelier, we compile some allusions from the history and ask the students to act out in order to train their imagination and to improve their ability in using the Chinese language to express themselves.

Additionally in accordance to the characteristics of children, we hold a daily ten-minute seminar and activity of "Listen, Think, and Try," and "Good Wills, Good Speeches, and Good Behaviors." We take good examples of these in every day life for the students to understand, to mimic, and to improve their behaviors.

We strongly believe that parents' involvement is indispensable to the education of the students. As a result, we strongly hope that our parents will closely cooperate. Let us work together to promote the traditional Chinese culture and virtue and to cultivate the high moral standards of our students in order to make them outstanding in both talent and virtue. Such students will surely benefit both the families and the society.

We are sincerely hopeful of seeing both you and your lovely children!

Thank you!
