Key elements of the programme:
Games, conversation activities, rhymes, poems, drama and role-play help children foster their confidence in speaking, discussing and expressing themselves in Mandarin.
Reading and dramatizing stories and idioms together, help expand children’s imaginations, build vocabulary and increase their understanding of the language. Some stories are further explored through writing activities.
Children learn to recognise Chinese characters, moving on to develop their ability to answer questions for reading comprehension tests.
Children learn to write Chinese characters, mastering the sequence of strokes. They then progress to constructing sentences, creating stories and developing their ability to express themselves in written form. Children in Kindergarten Two also receive worksheets enabling them to practise their skills at home.
