WHY IS MANDARIN THE LANGUAGE FOR YOUR GLOBAL CHILD'S SUCCESSFUL FUTURE?
According to American investment guru, Jim Rogers, " I have always thought that it is the most practical and necessary language of the 21st century, I still do ...and evidently, it becomes clearer and clearer every day." Jim moved his family to Singapore so that his daughters could grow up in a Mandarin cpeaking environment. They have been learning the Chinese language since birth, a move which he calls his best investment.
AN INVESTMENT FOR YOUR CHILD'S FUTURE
In 2012, the Australian government released it's White Paper for "Australia in the Asian Century". This identified the growth of the Asian markets and the need for Australian children to be at least bilingual in order to meet the demands of the world they will work within.
Our Little WorldLings programs will serve to prepare Australian children towards the time when more and more schools will be offering foreign languages as part of their curriculum.
The White Paper also identified plans for Mandarin and Italian as the first 2 languages to be taught in Australian primary schools from 2014.

About Ling Yeo - Founder of Little WorldLings
Being at boarding school has certainly opened my eyes to new cultures and widened my views of the world; I am able to speak 7 languages fluently today and acquire more as I progress in life; This, to me is priceless and I would like the same thing for today's children.
Born in Singapore, Ling was blessed with a multi-cultural upbringing that has offered her the skills to acquire languages naturally.
Ling has thoughtfully designed an effective language learning method that utilises the 3 senses of hearing, sight and speech to compliment our Little WorldLings programs. Her flagship learning space opened in January 2010 in Paddington, Sydney, and specialises in Language Immersion through Play programs for children aged 1 to 12 years.
Her latest project, BirthLings is for expectant mothers to start language immersion from the womb.
