The Chinese Language School (CLS) is a non-profit organization that aspires to extend the Chinese language and culture to the Connecticut and Massachusetts community. We meet at Trinity College on Sundays and Offer a variety of language and cultural programs for all ages and abilities. Since the inception of the CLS in 1980, students of all ages have benefited from our enriching classes and activities. At the CLS, students will:
  • Learn to speak, read, and write Chinese (both Traditional and Simplified).
  • Experience an enjoyable and safe learning environment.
  • Attend culture-enriching classes such as kung fu, traditional Chinese folk dancing, Chinese painting and calligraphy, Chinese chess, arts & crafts, and more.

This School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
