We got an invitation from Chengzhu Mandarin Centre (成竹华语中心) to attend their Chinese curriculum course. Chengzhu is part of “Julia Gabriel education” group.
It was interesting to see how Chengzhu’s passionate teachers go about enhancing the kids’ interest in Mandarin curriculum. The school firmly believes in instilling a love for Mandarin in the kids first.
Kang’s teacher is Teacher Yu, who nurtures the kids to appreciate “Mandarin” classes, through story telling, followed by quizzing the kids on their understanding (comprehension).
ChengZhu’s Mandarin curriculum follows MOE (Ministry of Education)’s curriculum. Teachers will keep emphasizing our kids to reply in full sentences, instead of words. (parents with Primary school going kids will always be puzzled why the correct answer will only get 1/2 mark, and only a full sentence gets you full mark)
More than the oriental environment, passionate teachers will determine whether our kids enjoy their classes. ChengZhu’s teachers has a high profiency of Mandarin, and Teacher Yu engages all the kids and kept them curious during the class. Kang really enjoys his show and tell session.
We would like to take this opportunity to thanks ChengZhu and Janice for the invite.
