About the Program
This unique program allows children to explore the Mandarin world by games, stories, crafts, songs, etc. The curriculum of each session is framed with various topics to accommodate children’s learning paces and to reflect the cultural and seasonal features. Following the topical games, Chinese characters are introduced in an interesting and well-prepared contextual way.
In the class we firstly play games and do activities, followed by learning sentences and words. Students are encouraged to bring work sheets home for review and preparation. The class is guided by qualified Mandarin teachers (lǎo shī, 老師), who would examine students’ learning progress and organise activities that are adaptable for individual learners. Depending on situations and activities, sometimes the class could be divided in groups to accommodate effective learning.
