Well Done To All Our Native Mandarin Students

Our students in Mandarin Native classes have been working relentlessly hard for the past month. I am very pleased that all of them have risen to the challenge and completed their reading and presentation tasks. I am more pleased to know that all students tried their best and attempted to write their own scripts. It is indeed wonderful to witness their potentials and their achievements when their limits are “pushed a little”. Well done, everyone!

Our young ones have not been letting up either. Their writing of the Chinese characters are taking form very well and I’m happy that most students are able to write with proper stroke sequences and appropriate structures. Year 1 is building up their abilities to recognize Chinese characters and Year 2 is making progress in acquiring sentence patterns. Our FS2 are excited about writing in the air and making themselves all ready for the next stage. It is wonderful to see them singing and dancing with courage and confidence together. Sing-a-long sessions are great to expose the young ones to Mandarin texts.

We also participated in the World Book Day Event held on 23 April (Friday) in our own quiet ways. I introduced a Chinese title “Big-headed son & Small-headed Dad” to our students and most of them gave positive feedback to that. Such that in the following weeks, I would always get requests to view more of the related stories from different levels. No wonder this title series has been popular in China for more than 40 years and still popular among Junior School students. My secret wish is for our library to stock up on various variations of the title and our students can enjoy Chinese reading. Through modern media, school and home efforts, Chinese reading can be a recreational activity for enjoyment.
