PSLE Chinese Learning

There are many reasons for our children to learn Chinese and do well in it. First and foremost, for the Chinese language, this is our mother tongue and part of our “roots”. Next, in Singapore where we follow a bilingual education system, our children are required to do well in Chinese academically. Last but not least, when our children grow up in future, it is a tool that may help them do well in their work life.

For parents whose children are in primary schools, the most immediate concern is the importance of the Chinese language for our children, in line with Singapore’s education system.

 

In primary school, Chinese language is one of the four examinable subjects at PSLE for students taking it as their Mother Tongue Language (MTL). Ability to do well in PSLE Chinese means that our children have more time to concentrate on the other subjects, or do other activities including having more time to play.

 

Under MOE’s policy, subject based banding (SSB) provides pupils with a differentiated curriculum that would best maximize their potential. The pupils are grouped in different classes for PSLE Higher Chinese, standard PSLE Chinese, and foundation Chinese lessons respectively.

 

Children who can do well in PSLE Chinese get more lesson time in higher Chinese class each week. They are placed in a more encouraging and motivating environment that includes activities like story telling, writing competitions and others similar such activities that inspire them to go further. Children doing higher Chinese for PSLE get bonus points that give them better chances to enter their chosen secondary school, where they are likely to be offered to continue in higher Chinese education.
