High Frequency Chart

Learning from context in Chinese can be quite slow. How many characters can be achieved realistically in childhood? A few hundreds? That already is some achievement in the U.S. or the U.K. You need thousands to build up literacy. Before the end of primary school, the child’s cognitive intelligence is way beyond his reading skill in Chinese. That’s usually the time when even the parent tend to give up.

You can start using this high frequency chart here that contains the most frequent 250 Chinese characters with your child. Share this wonderful finding with your friends!

  1. Children Learning Chinese – Benefits or Losses?
    兒童學習中文─是得還是失?
    There are indeed benefits or losses faced by those who continue to maintain or dismiss, respectively, bilingualism and biliteracy of the heritage language in their children’s lives. We will increase awareness of the crucial role families can play in passing on the language. Finally, we will also access the traditional method of Chinese teaching, which is commonly used in weekend or after-school programs.
    兒童在生活中學習雙語及學習雙語的書寫─中文和英文,無論我們是仍在努力維持中或已經放棄的,當中必定有很多得著和失去。我們希望提升家庭在傳遞語言時扮演的重要角色。最後,我們將會檢討一下大家常用的傳統學習中文形式─週末中文課堂或課後學習。
  1. Effective Chinese Teaching – Perceptions and Realities
    有效的中文教授─觀念和現實
    Part one of this seminar presents a theoretical analysis of the issue at hand, and this part gives a real and practical solution. We will now address those who have committed to maintain the language for their children. They need to be guided in how Chinese can be taught effectively. They will be able to reflect, plan and act in the process of acquisition and find encouragement, taking an active role as teachers in the forefront.
    前一部份講座給予我們學習中文的理念,而下半部則會分享一些有效的方法。這部份是特別為已決心教導中文的人士而設的,使你們藉著反省、計劃和彼此鼓勵而成為主動教授中文的一份子。
