Experiential Chinese Camp

Language is a tool of communication, not merely a subject in school.

Have you ever wondered that why none of your textbooks teach you how to order a cup of water in Chinese?

Let’s put ourselves in real life challenges and start using the Chinese language, it’s so much more than pinyin and tracing characters!

In each week’s Experiential Chinese Camp, students will learn 3 survival skills with structured vocabulary and sentences, followed by real life “challenges” assigned. Students will revise 1 old skill and learn 2 new skills in each of the subsequent week. At the end of each term, there will be a final exam competition for students to practice all skills learned.

Proposed Survival Skills:

  1. Everyday and Special Occasions Greetings
  2. Ordering food in food court and hawker centre
  3. Shopping for clothes
  4. Grocery shopping
  5. Getting a haircut or shampoo
  6. Scheduling an appointment (hair salon, clinic, the dentist, etc.)

And so much more! We welcome suggestions from kids and parents, please drop us a line at ask@janus.edu.sg
