About Lotus Mandarin program:
Using Board of Studies NSW Chinese Language Syllabus (link: http://www.boardofstudies.nsw.edu.au/syllabus_sc/pdf_doc/chinese_k10_syllabus.pdf) as guidance, Lotus program is delivered in an interactive and fun way, engaging our students with topics and themes that captivate them. So students will enjoy learning and be inspired to learn Mandarin now and in the future.
Students learn listening, speaking, reading and writing Mandarin through fun activities such as singing, games, role play, crafts and interactive video programs on smart board (if smart board is provided by host school). We also introduce culture components to our students:
∑ Classical Chinese arts, such as Chinese calligraphy and ink painting;
∑ Appreciation of classical Chinese poetry and music;
∑ General knowledge of Chinese traditions and customs, etc.
Our students also have the opportunity to participate in the National Chinese Eisteddfod competition held once a year by The Chinese Language Education Council.
