LOWER PRIMARY

小学低年级

A common misconception is that primary school classes can either be academically rigorous or it can be engaging. Why not both?

Our lower primary classes prepares your kids to succeed academically through a specifically developed curriculum based on the latest MOE syllabus, while making learning engaging through experienced teachers and our proprietary technology.

As parents ourselves, we know that one class a week can be insufficient to help our children excel at Chinese, especially for sections like composition, comprehension, and oral. That is why we have built an online learning system with a) weekly videos targetting these common problem areas, b) personalised vocabulary method to build a solid word recognition foundation.

Engage And Excel

Striking the right balance between being academic and being engaging is difficult. As parents, we want to ensure that our kids are well prepared for their exams/checkpoints without killing their interest in Chinese with overly academic classes.

Our primary school syllabus is put together by a team of curriculum experts with intimate knowledge of the latest MOE curriculum. To ensure your child excels, every lesson has a suitable amount of in-class worksheets and homework.

However, too much drilling will inevitably cause your child to dislike Chinese. That is why we engage your child by combining engaging teachers with our in-class apps. From winning digital coins from answering questions to team-based games, we utilise technology to ensure learning is engaging.

The combination of academically rigorous material with engaging teachers and classroom will ensure your child excels at Chinese while still enjoying it.

Integrating Classroom and Online Learning

As parents ourselves, we know that one class a week can be insufficient to help our children excel at Chinese. This is especially so for challenging questions like composition, comprehension, and oral, or for trying to build a vocabulary foundation. To help make our jobs as parents a little bit easier, we have built a personalised online learning system that solves both of these problems.

Online Learning Videos

Weekly videos explaining key problem areas like 便条

Our teachers record weekly videos targetting common problem areas like composition, comprehension and oral.

Your children can revise and review in their own free time.

Personalised Learning System

AI-powered Quiz reinforcing your child's weakest words

A common problem that many parents face is getting their kids to remember words long-term. Most kids can memorise words for tomorrow's spelling, but tend to forget within a week.

With our AI-powered personalized vocabulary learning system, we can help your child dramatically improve his or her vocabulary and reading skills with just a few minutes a day.

At K2, Raeann was very weak in Chinese and could barely recognize the basic Chinese characters. She dreaded learning Chinese and had no interest to communicate with us in Mandarin too. Through the activities and the interesting teaching methods, Raeann improved tremendously in her Chinese. At P1, she scored mostly full marks for her weekly Chinese Spelling and would often try to speak to us in Mandarin now.

Last but not least, Dan has been most helpful to accommodate our requests as much as possible and ensure that the children are well taken care of by his group of committed and passionate teachers. Keep up the good work, KidsStartNow!
