Chinese (Mandarin) Programme
KIS provides students of diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds the opportunity to learn Chinese at their appropriate levels. Students from Reception to Year 10 are assigned into four different groups based on their family linguistic backgrounds and initial Chinese abilities. Year 11 students can apply to write one of the three IGCSE Chinese examinations: Chinese as First Language, Chinese as Second Language or Chinese as Foreign Language. At AS level, Year 12 students have the option to further their Chinese studies.
The Chinese Department conducts our teaching in a dynamic way. A variety of curriculum-based activities are adopted in the Chinese class to ensure Chinese is delivered through a systemic and consistent curriculum. In addition to Chinese language, we also expose our students to Chinese culture and celebrate different Chinese festivals.
There will be ongoing assessments throughout the year, therefore students might be recommended to move to another group based on the assessments and performance in the middle or at the end of the year.
Lastly, the school will bring in a lot of Chinese reading books in our library in order to promote the Chinese reading.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding the Chinese programme.
