BOYA Chinese is located in the city of North York, Ontario, Canada. Starting in 2015, we now provide high-quality, level-specific Mandarin classes for over 300 students between the ages of 5-16. 

We are dedicated to making Mandarin learning EFFECTIVE and ENGAGING for our students and providing classes that best fit every student's needs. BOYA takes pride in our detailed learning streams which cover heritage language learners, half heritage language learners*, and second language learners of all levels, including AP and HSK prep courses. Students will be put into the proper stream-level classes based on the pre-assessment results and a thorough discussion with parents. We monitor students' progress closely through ongoing assessments, communicate with parents on a weekly basis, and adjust students' learning plans accordingly.  In two to four years, heritage language learners can normally master independent reading through our program and second language students can achieve the conversational level and learn basic reading.

* Half heritage means in the student's family, one parent speaks Mandarin while the other doesn't. In teaching practice, we have noticed that the students from MHHL families have their specific learning advantages and needs. So we set up this special stream and have developed a series of classes accordingly.
