Chinese as a Second Language

Chinese as a Second Language (CSL) is offered to non-Chinese students at three levels, from beginner to advanced. CSL is taught to international students enrolled in our Chinese elementary and middle schools, our Foreign Nationals schools, and is offered as an elective for international students in our BC high school program. An increasing number of our international students are taking advantage of this option to learn oral and written Mandarin.

International high school students completing all three levels will be granted equivalency credit for Mandarin 10, 11, and 12. Completing all three levels will enable students to write the British Columbia Mandarin 12 provincial exam.

MLES is very proud to host a Han Ban certified office at our Dalian headquarters. MLES is approved through this office to deliver CSL instructor training, and is also authorized as a CLS test site and Young Learners Chinese test site.
