For a child to learn Chinese well, he must have ample opportunity to listen and use it in his daily life. For this reason, parents (especially the mother) need to interact with their child using Chinese. This ensures that the child receives comprehensive input which is critical for the effective learning of the language. In addition, the child needs to be motivated, be provided with learning materials, have ample opportunities to use Chinese at home and be able to see his progress. There are several advantages for the child to become bilingual beyond school requirements. By interacting with the child in Chinese, parents literally turn their homes into an environment with a 24-hour immersion programme in which their child can learn the Chinese effectively and happily.

This session will be conducted in Chinese.
