SPEAKERS’ PROFILE

Mr Shaun Chen first started out as a model and was talent-spotted by Mediacorp in 2003. His affable and friendly nature soon won over Chinese drama producers who immediately cast him in the 100-episode series “Holland V”, in which his character “Xiao Xin”, a successful businessman suffering from temporary memory loss, made him a household name. Mr Chen won the Best Actor Award for his role in The Journey: Tumultuous Times at the 2015 Star Awards.

Dr Foo Tee Tuan is Director of Centre for Chinese Studies at the Singapore University of Social Sciences. He is also Assistant Leader of the Culture Group in the Ministry of Education’s Committee to Promote Chinese Language Learning (CPCLL).

As a child, Dr Foo received his formal education in Chinese-medium schools, and now cares deeply about Chinese education in Singapore. As the father of a Primary Three student, he pays close attention to his child’s learning of Chinese. How can children acquire a good command of Chinese in a predominantly English-speaking society? This is a question he seeks to answer when he is with his child, and Chinese movies, television programmes, comics, Mandopop and daily father-son conversations in Chinese provide some answers to that question.

主讲者简介

新传媒艺人陈泓宇在2003年被新传媒发掘,打开了他的演艺之路。他在首部电视剧《真心英雄》中初试啼声,获得观众的热烈回响,同年于新加坡百集长篇剧《荷兰村》中,成熟地演绎深情却失忆的“小心”(余宏志)一角,让观众留下深刻的印象。陈泓宇也在2015 《红星大奖》中众望所归,凭《信约:动荡的年代》赢得了最佳男主角的奖项。

符诗专博士现任新跃社科大学新跃中华学术中心主任。符博士于2017年加入教育部推广华文学习委员会,担任文化组副组长。作为一名华校生,他对华文、华语有深厚的感情。作为一名三年级小学生的父亲,他对要如何让下一代爱上华文有深沉的忧虑。如何在以英语为主的大环境中让孩子乐学活用华文、华语因此成为他与孩子之间每天要做的功课。电影、电视、漫画、流行音乐和亲子间的日常对话都是他让孩子在潜移默化间使用华文、华语的方便之门。

SHARING SYNOPSIS

For Mr Shaun Chen, learning Chinese was not all smooth sailing. As a kid, he struggled with the language and had to work hard to brush up his Chinese. Now, Chinese has helped him gain success in the entertainment industry. It has become an essential communication tool between him and his children.
