Chinese 4 Juniors
Chinese 4 juniors starts with a play-based oral language program designed for English speaking children of approximately 3 years and up. The program progresses onto literacy programs after oral language is established.
One-on-one lessons or small group lessons are kept short at 45 minutes each time so as not to over stretch the children's concentration span.
Initial instructions and games are conducted in both English and Chinese(Mandarin or Cantonese of your choice) so that the children are never lost at any time. Computer programs that supports the lesson objectives are also used in class.
The activities aim to introduce and build on vocabulary learnt previously so that the words stay in the children's mind through repetitive use.
The lessons aim to slowly build up the children's vocabulary, comprehension, and tonal appreciation crucial to both Mandarin (4 tones) and Cantonese (more than 10 tones, but can be simplified into 6 basic tones). Themes will also include main Chinese festivals to introduce the cultural setting for the language.
Parents are welcome to stay!
