Mandarin Chinese is spoken by over 1.3 billion people worldwide, making it the most widely spoken language in the world. English, is of course the world language, but Mandarin is growing in significance as a language of commerce, culture and communications.
Hong Kong is an amazing multi-cultural society, and as citizens of such a bustling city, we should all embrace the opportunity to learn to understand others’ traditions and culture. Studying Mandarin allows our pupils to communicate in the business language of the world and to converse in their local environment.
Besides preparing pupils for the future, studying Mandarin will nurture important skills which will help their development. Students will need to use different learning skills to master the language. They will improve their speaking and listening skills as well as visual memory.
We will use different learning tools to aid student progress, including audio visual material. Our focus will be on using real life situations allowing pupils to become confident when interacting with native speakers.
