Han Lin Yuan Language School is a premier Chinese Language School which was established with the aim of providing Chinese classes to primary school students to use the Chinese language efficiently and competently.

With the advent of globalisation in our modern day, exchanges between people of other countries, speaking other languages, have become more and more frequent, as well as important. Hence, it is all the more so important that we have a good grasp of other languages, such as Chinese, so as to communicate with others effectively.

In fact, it is not uncommon to see that many people in Singapore, despite being of high academic caliber, with high proficiency in other subjects such as mathematics and sciences, still struggle with even exchanging words in their mother tongue.

It is thus important to start getting your child equip with the language early, as acquiring a language takes time and practices. It is even more important to let your child to sustain the interest in learning the language.

So why is it necessary to learn and master the Chinese language well? There are numerous benefits:

  • Improving your child’s Chinese grades in school examinations and PSLE
  • Learning Chinese gets your child to better understand their roots and history as Chinese so as to better appreciate their culture and heritage.
  • Learning Chinese gives your child an insight into the way of life, as well as the hopes and dreams of the people in Chinese speaking countries.
  • Knowledge of Chinese increases your child job opportunities with Chinese and other foreign companies in future.
  • Acquaintance of this language enhances your child’s ability to build global business connections and enhance business relationships for companies with dealings in China.
  • Expertise in Chinese helps your child understand China – today’s economic powerhouse and political global influencer, as well as its policies, much better.

At Han Lin Yuan Language School, we aim to provide children with an effective yet enjoyable Chinese learning experience so that they not only gain proficiency in the language, but come to love it as well.

How government acknowledge mandarin as an important topic?

According to official statistics, the Singapore 2015 General Household Survey stated that for the local Chinese population that were under 25 years old, “more than half spoke English predominantly at home”. Which showed there is a decrease in the use of Mandarin in our Chinese community.

This is in spite of an actual organisation (Promote Mandarin Council) that was formed to promote the use of proper Mandarin, which is one of the mostly widely spoken languages in the world, with 800 million speakers.

In Singapore, the need for speaking good mandarin has been an important part of our society for us in the Chinese community since 1979, when then Prime Minister Mr Lee Kuan Yew started the “Speak Mandarin Campaign”. In its 39th year since its inception, it has seen steady growth with numerous competitions, commercials and festivals to promote and develop its cause, which shows the importance of the language in Singapore.

Nowadays, the importance of mastering of the Chinese language is even more evident with China’s rapid rise in the global rankings in terms of their economy, production growth, trade and technology. This imminent expansion of Chinese influence further sparks the need to properly grasp the language in order to remain competitive and relevant in the years to come.

Therefore, as a Chinese Language School, Han Lin Yuan recognises the need for a holistic education and curriculum for your children’s future.

What challenges are parents facing now about educating kids on mandarin

Being a premier Chinese Language school near Ang Mo Kio, Han Lin Yuan’s faculty knows what it takes to give your child the best possible education in the language. But we also recognise some parents might have difficulty in making the learning of the Chinese Language essential in their children’s education. But why is learning the Chinese language such a challenge for parents?

The Chinese language or mandarin, is taught differently from English. The usual curriculum in schools are deemed a chore by children, who would be tasked to go through writing numerous repetitions of the Chinese characters, filled with complex strokes in a set sequence and order. Every character has to be memorised and taught to learn the proper grammar needed for sentence construction. This is a potential stumbling block which might deter a young child from appreciating the language and even be willing to put in the hard hours to master it.

A key factor that prove to be a challenge for children to learning the Chinese Language would be their environment at home. According to official statistics, the Singapore 2015 General Household Survey stated that for the local Chinese population that were under 25

years old, “more than half spoke English predominantly at home”. Which showed there is a decrease in the use of Mandarin in our Chinese community.

This causes their native Mandarin to be a secondary language that is only touched upon in school, further reducing the importance and practice necessary for the children to master it.

To make learning the language easier, it has to be introduced as part of their daily routine, such as casual conversations. This would not only allow the much needed practice, but also for them to learn the appropriate words for different situations, contexts and everyday occurrences.

Thus, we provide the essential Primary School Chinese Lesson necessary to kick start your child’s learning adventure with Han Lin Yuan, where our interactive lesson structures and teaching methods will ensure your child learns and enjoys the process most importantly of all.
