Language Learners

Nursery 1 to Kindergarten 2
1½ hour session, once a week

In this programme, engaging activities including drama, storytelling, music and movement, art and craft, and writing practice make developing competency in the four components of language learning (speaking, listening, reading and writing) a fun and enjoyable process.

Key elements of the programme:

  • Speaking: Games, conversation activities, rhymes, poems, drama and role-play exercises help children develop their confidence in speaking, discussing and expressing themselves in Mandarin.
  • Listening: Stories and idioms are read and dramatised by our teachers, expanding childrens imaginations, vocabulary and understanding of language. Some stories are further explored through drama and writing activities.
  • Reading: Children learn to recognise Chinese characters, moving on to building their ability to answer questions for reading comprehension tests.
  • Writing: Children learn to write Chinese characters, mastering the sequence of strokes. They then move on to constructing sentences, creating stories and developing their ability to express themselves in written form.
