***Two New Enrichment Classes for school year 2017-2018***

1. 說故事學中文 Learning Chinese Through Stories

適合三年級以上的學生/ Suitable for students above 3rd grade
藉由故事讓小朋友們喜歡聽中文、說中文。課堂老師會依照故事內容,讓孩子用一張紙做出自己的彩繪書,寫出故事中的基本文字。完成後孩子們可自由發揮想像力和創造力,用中文說出彩繪書裡的故事。

This class aims at engaging students' interest in listening and speaking Chinese by means of storytelling. Based on the storyline, the teacher would instruct students to use a piece of paper to make a pop-up picture booklet, and to practice using the core vocabulary that made up the story in their design. At the end, students are encouraged to use their creativity and imagination to tell the story in their own booklets.

Curriculum:
Lasting for the entire academic year, is divided into 4 series of classes: Nursery Rhymes, Chinese Calligraphy & Painting, Tai Chi, and Chinese Crafts Making

Introduction:
No Chinese language skill prerequisite. By means of active participation and hands-on activities, this Cultural Kaleidoscope course, taught by local experts, provides a window into some of the many facets of Chinese cultural traditions, as well as the charm of Chinese language. Nursery rhymes sing-along offers an entertaining and effortless way to develop students' vocabulary. The fundamental techniques associated with Chinese calligraphy and ink-wash painting open up to students the ancient Chinese art forms. The amazingly fluid motions of Tai Chi introduce students to the Chinese concepts of balancing the yin and the yang. Chinese crafts are the part and parcels of Chinese livelihood. Making Chinese crafts such as lanterns, Chinese knots, and paper cutting connect students to the world of Chinese aesthetic beauty. In short, our teachers are holding your children's hands to explore and appreciate the most celebrated aspects of Chinese culture through a myriad of fun activities.
