Mandarin Foundation (N1 to K2)

Are you concerned that your child will not be ready for the demands of the MOE Mandarin syllabus at school by the time they reach Primary 1? If they are growing up in a non-Mandarin speaking household this could well be the case!

Our Mandarin Foundation programme prepares preschoolers to approach the primary school Mandarin curriculum with confidence. We capture their interest from the start, combining our EduGrove methodology with interactive activities including storytelling, sing-alongs, nursery rhymes, show and tell, drama, language games, reading and writing activities and art and craft.

One of the main aims of this preschool programme is to develop students’ listening and speaking skills in a way that inspires them to enjoy learning Mandarin as a natural process. We set out to avoid the typical habit of children growing to hate their Mandarin studies. That’s why laying strong foundations during this period of development is so important for future appreciation of learning. Boosted by a growing awareness of Chinese culture and its rich traditions, Mandarin Foundation provides the perfect bridge between our Mandarin playgroup programme and your child’s entry into formal education.
