Our Vision

Studying Chinese in Hong Kong, it is inevitable for non-Chinese speaking (NCS) students to come across words, sentences and texts related to Chinese Historical Personage. However, owing to inadequate understanding of Chinese culture, they may feel overwhelmed with learning. Sponsored by Standing Committee on Language Education and Research (SCOLAR), this project aims at designing a set of theme-based learning materials centered around Chinese Historical Personage to be made available for free access.

Chinese Cultural Readings: Historical Personage”Project has put equal weight on Chinese learning and moral education.With a clearly-presented interface and sophisticated animation, students are able to better understanding the text and have shown great interest in learning. The support for e-learning is also comprehensive. Features such as text recording, bilingual texts, Cantonese romanisation can sufficiently support NCS students of different learning abilities. The glossary is particularly appreciated concerning that for NCS students who are relatively weaker in reading and writing, this function enables a more efficient learning of the formation and stroke order of Chinese words. Moreover, students are also able to practice the stroke order wherever necessary. This has greatly reduced the time needed for teaching students to write, and therefore enhanced the effectiveness of teaching.The great variety of assessment, together with well-designed questions, also enables an effective review of the learning outcome and consolidation on the curriculum emphasis. Overall speaking, this project is beneficial for NCS students to learn Chinese, understand Chinese cultures and motivate self-learning
