The Year of the Dog came on Feb 16. Toronto Mandarin School held various events to celebrate the lunar new year with families and friends.

At the weekend school, more than 600 people attended the event on Saturday, Feb 10. The theme of the event is named the “Carnival of the Year of the Dog”. The crowd was wowed by the students’ performance and the traditional lion dance. This year we also invited students and staff from different sites to perform on the stage. 14 market stands were festively decorated, where students learned how to make dumplings, practice Chinese calligraphy and brush painting, make traditional arts & crafts, or bought New Year items, home-made food, fresh fruits and candies. There was also a playing station for preschool children to play fun interactive games. Many staff, students and parents dressed up in traditional clothing and made such a festive scene.


Children at four preschool sites(JINGBAO Bilingual Children’s Center) all dressed up in beautiful festive colors, performed songs and dances for the parents and guests.

Students from our Adult Training Center threw a big Spring Festival party on Friday, February 3. We learned how to make dumplings from the scratch. Everyone received a red envelope for good fortune in the new year.

Teaching Real Estate Business Mandarin at Royal LePage


All realtors should learn Mandarin! It is actually happening!

Royal LePage, one of the largest Canadian real estate franchisers and owner-operators, has invited Toronto Mandarin School to teach Real Estate Business Mandarin at their Richmond Hill and Aurora office. Two groups, ten agents including the top sales performers started their first Monday class on October 17th, 2017.

In their first class, the group learned how to greet Chinese customers, introduce themselves to Chinese buyers and give the basic description of a property. Everybody was amazed how much they learned and were capable to do after one hour lesson.

The training was led by our experienced instructor, Ms, Ouyang.

“The purchasing power of Chinese people can never be neglected and it is extremely important for the realtors to learn Mandarin if you want to do business with the Chinese client.” Ms. Michelle Risi, the Executive Vice President at YCR Real Estate Academy, and broker of Royal LePage Your Community Realty commented.

Yes, if you want to do business with Chinese people, you’d better speak the language. Contact us at 416- 304-0260 for a free consultation.
