What’s our approach?
We have deliberately designed our programmes with an emphasis on FUN! But what exactly does ‘fun’ mean and why is it important? After all, learning Mandarin is a serious business – isn’t it?
Do you remember the way you learnt Mandarin when you were a child at school? And do you remember how you felt about it? Did you dread your Mandarin classes?
We don’t want children today to feel the same about Mandarin as we did when we were young. But more than that, we want our students to LEARN it, LOVE it and LIVE it with appreciation, enjoyment and success. An altogether more fulfilling way to study, don’t you agree!
EduGrove’s curriculum closely follows the MOE’s syllabus for Mandarin at primary and secondary levels, ensuring plenty of familiarity with MOE designated keywords. But our delivery is what sets us apart. As experienced educators, we know from research that children learn best when they enjoy what they do, when they feel inspired by the people and environment around them, and when they are praised and encouraged along the way. That’s why at EduGrove our key teaching methods include specially designed word games, improvisational drama and role-play, tried and tested tools to sparking curiosity and excitement, creative thinking and imagination and an enjoyment of learning. Delivering lessons in this way, means students experience language in action, ensuring that the knowledge and skills they acquire are meaningful, relevant and most importantly, remembered long term. Through this interactive approach, learning Mandarin becomes second nature!
