What is our approach towards education and learning Mandarin?
Mandarin Lighthaus use Mandarin as a medium to instill the STEAM approach. Why?
We respects children as born explorers and self-learners.
Hence, we believe the most important element to learning is to place children in what considered as their primary natural learning environment to satisfy their learning behaviors.
Let them Explore, Investigate, we stimulate their Curiosity; Creativity; encourage knowledge of everyday Problem Solving and Critical Thinking.
Although Chinese is the hardest language to learn, we have made learning Mandarin more fun through our interactive and exciting STEAM approach.
At this very young age they will absorb the language like a sponge.
Some of the subject may seem lofty for young children to grasp. In some ways it’s true. But STEAM if not about flashing word and picture cards to an infant, or emphasizing memorization of timetables and Math formula. It is hands-on things that children do everyday.
It could be a child digging in sand and feeling the texture, pouring water into sand and observing the change in texture; mixing colours; stacking LEGOs as high as he could and the list goes on.
