Yang Guang Chinese Enrichmement Centre
Plant the seeds of Values into our children and they can grow to become the positive catalysts of our community.
Established as a values-based Chinese Enrichment Centre, Yang Guang Chinese aims to build strong learning foundations for our students in the Chinese language, as well as to mould the character of our students through the teaching of values; developing each student into an individual with sound values and upright character, and with a strong sense of commitment to the community and society.
WHY YANG GUANG?
To Ace in Chinese, Aim at "Speaking"
To learn Chinese well, it is best to start with speaking. In Yang Guang, we know this too well. Hence there is a deliberate oral component in every lesson, in which we provide platforms such as Show-and-Tell and peer conversation for students to learn to speak Mandarin fluently from native Chinese teachers.
Before we get students to practice speaking, they would be guided through a thinking process to help clarify their thoughts and would be coached in putting these thoughts into words. With more practice, they gain more confidence per lesson in speaking expressively and with clarity. Not only will Yang Guang students see a boost in oral skills, they will also see a marked improvement in results as oral exams make up 25% of the total Chinese Language grade. Combined with effective writing techniques and strong vocabulary, students' overall performance in learning Chinese will be enhanced. Soon they will be more affirming and have less fear of Chinese Language exams.
