Drama is a fantastic tool to enhance learning and language development. Participation in drama has the potential to develop language and communication abilities, problem-solving skills, to stimulate creativity and to promote a positive self-esteem. By combining Mandarin language with drama, this programme aims to boost your child's desire to communicate in more expressive ways, enhancing your child's Mandarin skills in the process.
Depending on the age group of the class, this particular course incorporates different forms of drama: acting out a simple story, using puppetry, role-plays, reciting and dramatising poetry, improvisation, or actually acting out plays.
During this course, your child will:
- practise his/her Mandarin in different contexts and learn correct pronunciation, rhythm, stress and intonation;
