A Wide Range of Topics
Content Relevant to Daily Life
With the goal of helping students to build up their Chinese language skills from real-life material, 150 articles have been abstracted from the Ming Pao news. The topics cover current affairs, health, environment, sports, education, technology, construction, social studies, etc. , which are relevant to the experience of students. This helps to keep them interested and inspires them to learn Chinese from daily lives.
Targeting Learning Difficulties
These activities address the problems that NCS students encounter while they are learning Chinese. Specific activities are designed for recognizing character formation, pronunciation and meaning, practicing stroke order during writing, and differentiating characters with similar structure and pronunciations. There are also activities that require students to read aloud in order to improve their speaking ability.
The content is divided into three levels of difficulty – elementary, advanced and proficient. Students can select the level appropriate to their ability. The app is suitable for NCS students in upper-primary and lower-secondary school.
Designed for Self-Study
Twice the Benefit in Half the Time
Each article contains Cantonese audio clips. All key words are translated in to English, Urdu, Hindi and Nepalese so that students who speak those languages can learn precise meanings. Students can choose any character from the articles to learn its radicals, number of strokes, stroke order (animated), formation and pronunciation. All activities allow students to save their answers; they also provide comments immediately, so that students can assess their performance.
