The Chinese Center of Toledo Moves to Maumee Valley Country Day School With New Hours and More Access to Non-Chinese Students in NW Ohio

Posted Jul 31st, 2007 by Louisa Ha  Category: Education

 

The Toledo Chinese School has been renamed The Chinese Center of Toledo and is now a registered non-profit organization. To provide a better and more stimulating educational environment, the school is moving from the Chinese Alliance Church to Maumee Valley Country Day School on 1715 S Reynolds Rd., Maumee, Ohio, 43614. The new location will offer non-Chinese and Chinese students in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan easy access to Chinese language and culture classes in a professional educational facility for the first time since it was founded in the 1970s.

The school will utilize the middle school area with a gymnasium and a dining area. Classes will be held on Fridays from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for language classes and 8:30-9:30 for culture classes. Language classes from level 1 to 8 will be offered. There will also be a playgroup for 3-4 year olds and classes offered for children and adults in English-speaking families. Culture classes such as choirs and Chinese calligraphy will be offered on demand.

Registration for classes has already begun. Students registering before August 15 will receive a discounted tuition rate. Fall semester will begin on September 7 (Friday). For the latest information and details about the course offerings and registration form, please visit Chinese Center of Toledo’s web site at http://www.toledochinese.org/cct . Also please visit the Chinese Center of Toledo’s booth at the Dragon Boat Festival on July 28.

The school has a new Board of Directors. The chair is Joseph Chao, Ph.D., and at-large directors are Luanne Billstein, An-Chung Cheng,Ph.D., Louisa Ha Ph.D., Afser Shariff, M.D., and Peter You. Ye Liang is the School Management Representative and School Principal. Joyce Jiang is the School Faculty Representative.

With the rapid economic growth in China and the important strategic role China plays in American politics, learning Chinese has become increasingly popular. Several major cities such as Chicago have designated Chinese as one the most important second languages to be taught.

NOTE: Board of Directors and the school principal can be available for interviews on Chinese language learning in Toledo and Toledoan’s interest in Chinese language and culture.
