- to be an exam-smart student, or be really good at what he is studying, so he can use and applywhat he knows, for future use?
Do you know that, many times when a child does not do well in a subject, it has not much to do with his innate ability, but more to do with whether s/he has the right nurturing and guidance?
Do you also know that, when students do not do well for language, it has a lot to do with his experiences, his habits in communication, and his way of thinking, rather than just knowledge of words and phrases itself?
The best way to help a child perform better for language, hence, is to give them the experiences they need and the mindsets they need, to motivate their language learning abilities and skills sets automatically.
Inspiren's Chinese Programme designed specifically to guide Singaporean students through a series of engaging and intriguing curriculum, allows young children to grow an interest and passion in Chinese, learn how to learn Chinese effectively, and develop confidence in the language and subject in school.
What's more, it builds a foundation so strong, it propels them for excellence in life and learning.
MOE and schools have vowed to 'shift' from 'rote learning' to a more creative and flexible style of learning, known as 'Teach Less, Learn More'.
Under this framework, students can no longer rely on just memorising some words and phrases to do well in the Chinese exams.
Assessments now require thorough understanding of word and language use, deep understanding of the passage and critical understanding of the questions asked. Hence, logical and critical thinking skills are tested, on top of good language proficiency.
Our students speak and use English most of the time nowadays. It is no wonder that they find Chinese exams hard.
However, with that in mind, Inspiren seeks to twist things around, andsave Singaporean Chinese kids from this bad vicious cycle.
