The Children’s Palace

By 22 June 2009 One Comment

Shao Nien Gong, The Children’s Palace, is a youth learning center where elementary school-age Chinese students pursue extracurricular skills and studies. In order to be well-prepared in future competition, Chinese kids begin learning English, math, singing, and dancing at an early age. Enrollment is open to any student whose parents can afford to pay the 400 RMB (USD 58.53) tuition rate per course per half year. Some parents sit in the classroom during the lessons and take notes for their children. This video provides a glimpse into China’s efforts to prepare today’s youth for their lives and careers.
