Frequently Asked Questions
Most preschools’ Chinese syllabus in Singapore didn’t utilize the golden period of 3-7 years old for Chinese character recognition. Their syllabus is dull and lacks proper method in introducing the Chinese language.
We realised this issue and decided to curate our own Chinese Enrichment Class in Singapore — 3R Independent Reader Program. Through our proprietary 3R learning method, our students will learn how to recognise, remember and read Chinese characters in a fun and meaningful way. It is refined by adding in some local ‘flavours’, such as the Merlion, orchid flower and HDB flats, words and phrases Singaporeans are familiar with and pair them up with pictures and videos. As a result, they learn Chinese up to 5 times faster through creative activities and become an independent reader.
Our tutors have helped over 1000 students from Singapore schools such as Nanyang Primary, Catholic High, Aitong, ACSI and CHIJ Primary build a strong foundation & interest in the Chinese language. After attending our Chinese tuition, your child will start LOVING Chinese, and become intensely-motivated to do better and better. Many years down the road, you won’t even need to worry about his/her PSLE Chinese exam preparation.
