YouLe Mandarin Speech & Drama Programme
Stories and dramas are an important medium to impart vocabulary and grammar skills about how a language should be used. More importantly, these stories and dramas also teach us about life, through which our students learn empathy, humour, problem-solving and moral values.
Goals of our Programme
- Develop an interest in learning Chinese language and culture.
- Be confident in expressing themselves in Mandarin
- Develop social skills such as empathy and humour as they interact with their peers
- Learn about good morals as espoused through the stories
"YouLe makes Mandarin comes alive with multi-sensory stimulation, inspirational Chinese poems, flash cards, drama, song and dance, hands on creative activities for the children to stay engaged throughout the session."Evangeline, Shiloh's Mum
From Page to Stage
...how our Chinese Speech & drama classes nurture confidence and social cognitive skills
Our Mandarin Speech & Drama Programme for children age 3 to 6 aims to bring Mandarin from page to stage, where children not only develop a love for reading, but are also confident in expressing themselves in Mandarin. Through participative activities like role-playing (with life-like props), poetry recitals, craftwork, music-&-movement, debates and presentations, our students enjoy unbridled freedom to practice Mandarin with their teachers and classmates.
We conduct our class activities in a group orientation, which promotes a great deal of interaction and teamwork between our young performers. Our students learn to help one another and co-operate with group members to achieve team objectives. These enable our students to pick up vital social skills, etiquettes and teamwork, which will be put to great use in school and in life.
Every sixth lesson, parents and family members are invited to watch their prodigies proudly perform what they have learnt in class. This is our platform for students to individually and collectively shine with their newfound confidence and skills in Mandarin in front of their families. These performances provide immense encouragement and boost to our students’ confidence and esteem, making them bold and brave to face the world!
