Who We Are:

First Step Mandarin is a Mandarin and Cantonese Chinese school that serves the Waterloo Region. At First Step Mandarin, our classes give our students an opportunity to partake in active learning that is fun and engaging. Instead of lecture based classes, students are given conversation practice, an opportunity to work through activities, play games and get exposure to different forms of Chinese media. We want our students to enjoy learning Mandarin. Because we believe that if you don’t enjoy something and develop a passion for it, you can’t ever expect to master it.
