Chinese courses

The classes are 2 hours, which put emphasis on listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. The following are teaching materials used in the camps:
Chinese text books: Our own edited teaching materials which teach the reading and writing skills. The levels are equivalent to the primary school levels in Taiwan, for example, after finishing the first book, the students shall have the same level as the first-grade primary school students in Taiwan in reading and writing. After finishing the book 3, the teachers will introduce the concept of writing, which shall serve as base for writing essays in the future. The content of the teaching materials is based on the traditional Chinese characters published by the Ministry of Education, together with the mandarin phonetics symbols and pinyin.
Life Chinese textbook series: These teaching materials are edited by the Ministry of Education and the Commission for Overseas Chinese. This material is oriented toward a mixed teaching method of speaking and listening. Besides writing the new words and sentences, there are many exercises for the use of new words.
Besides these two series of Chinese lessons (one unit per day), we also offer 2 hours of complementary teaching, e.g.:

1. Origin of the words (listening training of Chinese and the use of the words): recognizing the words through pictures, the origin of the words.
2. Stories of 300 words (training of reading and comprehension abilities)
3. Idiom stories (training of listening and application ability of idioms)
4. Writing courses (complementary to the textbook 5, training the writing ability of the children)
