This Mandarin Pine I class is for year 2 to year 3 children who have learned some Mandarin to YCT level 1 (80 words). Personalised teaching taking into account each child's first language background and learning style, will be made possible and duly taken into account in their lessons. All lessons will be delivered in immersive Mandarin Chinese. English explanations will be given when needed, but always kept to a minimum allowing children to have the maximum exposure to Mandarin with us. Teachers will use multimedia and interactive classroom activities with an emphasis on learning through engaging activities. Age-relevant Chinese idiom stories and Chinese history will be introduced in drama-style lessons. Students already have learned how to use Pinyin (symbols for Chinese pronunciation), read independently, and write in Mandarin. Within a year of study, students will achieve YCT (Youth Chinese Test) Level 2, command 80 -150 words in reading and speaking. Working towards writing short paragraphs.
**Commitment: Students will be expected to commit a minimum of 10 minutes of daily homework and revision time on Mandarin.
**The home language environment is not essential, but parents' support at home is crucial.
