With China already a global economic and political power, being proficient in Mandarin is highly essential for your child’s success in their future careers. Children have an unfathomable capacity to learn various languages at a young age and what better time to immerse them in Mandarin than their preschool days?
At Posso, we place equal emphasis on English and Mandarin. Rather than teaching Mandarin merely as a second language, we immerse our children in a Mandarin language environment. We not only teach our children the fundamentals of Mandarin, we also conduct our lessons, including math, art and craft, science, speech and drama and cookery, in Mandarin. In this way, Mandarin becomes a learning tool, not just a learning content.
For half of your child’s learning time with us, they are fully immersed in a Mandarin speaking environment. Our native Chinese educators will only communicate with them in Mandarin, but also encourage them to use Mandarin to express themselves and communicate with one another. Various classes will also be taught using Mandarin, in order for children to master the language confidently.
Proprietary Mandarin Curriculum
Our Mandarin curriculum is developed in-house by our team of native China curriculum writers, not just borrowed from any ready-made programmes. Every lesson plan and teaching material is thoughtfully designed in order to stimulate and guide our children towards the effective use of Mandarin as a medium for thought, communication, expression and interaction.
Diverse Learning Experiences
Our Mandarin curriculum adopts a broad-based learning approach to allow children to use Mandarin in a variety of contexts and situations. Various games and activities such as math, speech and drama, art and craft, science and cookery are delivered in Mandarin, in conjunction to English, in order to reinforce listening, reading, comprehension, sentence formation and expression of the Chinese language. Each child is also unique. Some excel in artistic or creative pursuits, some do better in social and interactive settings. Varied learning experiences therefore bring out the best in every child and allow them to master the language in their own special way.
