Mandarin Teachers Nod on Teaching Chinese Language Workshop

To further enhance and strengthen Chinese language and culture and to unveil teaching methodologies to improve the quality of teaching, the SMSS Mandarin teachers attended the seminar-workshop held at the Primary section on 28 April and 12 May respectively.

Teacher Wong Toh Yieng and Teacher Ling Yen Ting successfully cascaded the highlights of the Mandarin Teacher Training Program they attended in December 2016. Teachers Wong and Ling attended a 2-week course organised by the Overseas Chinese Department in Xiamen, China, on Mandarin Teaching. Among the topics presented were ways on how to improve students’ reading comprehension, effective methods of teaching and classroom management.

For the workshop to be successful, the facilitators encouraged the participants to share not only their skills in writing fun and interesting compositions but also by showing their writing styles focusing on brevity and clarity.

Dr Mary Lim, the CEO of Sarjana Education Group, assisted by Mr Sim Jeng Siang, General Manager for Operations, presented the certificates of recognition to all of the participants. The awarding of certificates was held on the second day of the workshop, 12 May 2017.

Forge ahead, Mandarin Department!
