Chinese Enrichment / Enrichment+ / 
P5 & P6 Higher Chinese (HCL) Programmes

 

Chinese Enrichment (P1 to P2)

For young learners, cultivating an early interest in the Chinese language and building strong foundational skills are essential. Yang Guang Chinese Enrichment programme covers all aspects of learning the Chinese language: speaking, listening, reading and writing. 

Our class sizes are kept small to allow greater teacher-student interaction and active learning is facilitated through the extensive use of multi-media aids and stimuli.

 

Further, moral values (in-line with MOE’s focus on character development) are weaved into the programme and this supports our students’ overall holistic development.

 

Students will also acquire all the necessary skill sets required for higher level work in Primary 3.

Course Elements:

​  All courses are in-line with MOE’s curriculum and format

  • Hanyu Pinyin

  • Oral, listening comprehension, reading, short comprehension passages and one-picture composition writing

  • Show-and-tell

  • Usage of visual stimulus to build and retain vocabulary

  • Platform for expression of feelings and thoughts required in oral and one-picture composition

Our small class sizes enable our teachers to closely monitor each individual student’s learning and progress. This allows us to cater to every student’s needs, thereby helping them achieve their full potential.
