Many parents look forward to their children’s entering primary school. However, pressure arises given the amount of homework, dictations, tests and examinations, among which the weekly dictation is the biggest stressor.
Content to be covered:
• How can parents help children do revision?
• How to help children study and memorise effectively?
• Would studying for dictation be a war or a warm period for both parents and children?
This workshop will use examples from school materials to show parents some innovative and fun ways to enhance children’s interest in learning Chinese, and to help parents and children enjoy revision time.
