Nursery 1 to Kindergarten 2
Schedule: 1½ hour sessions, once or twice per week
Children enjoy activities including drama, storytelling, music and movement, art and craft, and writing practice, all of which motivate competency in the four components of language learning (speaking, listening, reading and writing) in a fun and enjoyable way.
Key elements of the programme
Games, conversation activities, rhymes, poems, drama and role-play help children develop 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 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 move on to constructing sentences, creating stories and developing their ability to express themselves in written form. Children in Kindergarten Two also receive worksheets for practising their skills at home.
