Chinese Language

Learning Outcomes

To furnish our pupils with the fundamental skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing so as to enable them to be proficient users of Chinese in everyday context, as well as to embed in pupils a lifelong interest in the Chinese language and culture.

Teaching Approaches

To fortify our pupils’ mastery of the Chinese language, we constantly employ a variety of teaching and assessment strategies through ICT, Differentiated Instruction, Making Thinking Visible, Assessment for Learning and the 5W1H to deepen their learning experience. Great emphasis is also made to ensure that pupils are well trained in utilizing the POLYA thinking routine in problem solving.

Department Programmes

Keeping the objective of stimulating and sustaining our pupils’ interest in learning Chinese in mind, the Chinese Language Department has also put in place a range of differentiated enrichment activities designed to expose our pupils culturally while promoting opportunities for meaningful interaction and collaboration amongst each individual.
