Secondary School Chinese Tuition Singapore

Learning Objective


Equipped with the strong foundation acquired in Primary School, for Secondary School Chinese tuition, in line with the MOE’s syllabus, we focus to:

  1. Make learning the language more interesting and relevant to today’s society;
  2. Cultivate mastery in the language by fostering more proficient and frequent use of the language.

These could be achieved through the following 3Cs:

  • Communication – Building on the 6 aspects of listening, speaking, reading, writing, oral interaction and written interaction skills acquired in Primary School, further develop student’s mastery and confidence in the usage of the language in daily life.
  • Culture – Through the incorporation and exposure to various cultural and literary works in school, students learn to better understand and appreciate the cultural aspect of the language and thereby enhancing their awareness to global cross-cultural issues.
  • Connection – Encourage students to engage in discussion of contemporary issues as well as recent current affairs. This will enrich the way students learn the language and allow them to realise how the language is important and relevant even outside of the classroom.

Teaching Methods

Bilingual Teaching

With predominantly English speaking families in Singapore, the use of English to teach and explain difficult to understand Chinese vocabulary and content to students have proven effective for many students.

Building on Vocabulary and Idioms

Central to the effective learning of the Chinese language is to a strong focus on building on the recognition and understanding of Chinese vocabulary and idioms.

Holistic Learning

Learning of the Chinese language should be meaningful by developing the interest of the language through incorporation of cultural and current affairs elements into the lesson and promoting the use of the language effectively and efficiently in daily life.

Developing Key Examination Skills
