E-Learning Fun for K1
Boosting children’s interest and exposure to a language-rich environment is crucial in helping children develop their language skills, especially when in learning a foreign language. Unfortunately due to the pandemic, opportunities for children to communicate with others in social settings have been greatly reduced.
Pebbles has organized the following two courses to develop their speaking skills in English and Putonghua, and let them enjoy the fun of learning different languages!
E-Learning Fun for K2 & K3
Online learning is fast becoming an indispensable part of education. Even primary school interviews may be conducted in this way in the future, whether we like it or not. While online learning can never replace face-to-face lessons, it is a useful tool during these uncertain times to help children stay connected, keep to a routine and to prepare them for the challenges in the coming years. To better equip our students for e-learning, and to be able to present themselves well online, an E-learning programme will be launched and delivered via video-conferencing. Chinese, English, and Putonghua courses will be available for students entering K2 (Lower) and K3 (Upper) in the coming year.
