Non Practice Paper Based
We don’t want to nurture your child into a machine who only knows how to do questions after questions.
Practical In Our Approach
Everyone knows how to talk about principles and values, BUT we guide students to apply them to real-life scenarios.
Learning Through Mistakes
We create an environment to protect the curiosity of all students. Everyone is here to learn and improve. This include us teachers as well.
It’s ALL About Understanding
Your child never has to memorise anything. At HLS, everything is built on naturally through various fun activities.
THe Guided Thought Process is Valued More Than The Final Answer
Often, when a “wrong” answer is voiced, the right answer will be provided by the teacher with minimal explanations. If your child still has some immunity against this, he will be silently screaming “Why is my answer not accepted?” At HLS, we will eliminate his query through various guided thought processes to derive at the final answer naturally.
Your Child's Long-Term Benefit
Interactive Yet Orderly
Thoughts are frequently conveyed in the classroom. Even if your child is extrovert, he will benefit from the thought exchange process. HLS's good classroom management is the key to high efficiency.
Activities Serve Their Purpose
Don't worry! We have clear goals of what each classroom activity is going to achieve. Your child will not be carried away by the formality to focus on their real meaning.
A Systematic WORD-RIDDLE Guided Way Of Recognizing Characters
Understand the meaning of individual Chinese characters through its unique simplified forms to stimulate accurate understanding.
Your Child Is Encouraged To Ask
The Chinese equivalent of knowledge is 学问, which literally means learning how to ask. It's vital for knowledge acquisition.
Your Child Is Encouraged To Question
At HLS, speaking out on what you think may be wrong is applauded. This questioning process is essentially the first step towards developing independent thinking.
"Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school."
Using flexible teaching methods; training flexible thinking
Using concise word-riddles to teach individual Chinese characters; training concise speech
Training an agile mind to analyse any text or deal with all sorts of situations
Our lessons are not only designed to cover the school’s syllabus, but expand right above it. The expansion is a natural process to aid your child to achieve better understanding of the school syllabus. Even if your child is weak in the subject, he will benefit from the expansions.
Our lessons are teaching-based and student-oriented. You could find out more in our students’ testimonial videos found in our Integrated Chinese Class and the Character Recognition Class.
First, we need to access his standard and know the exact problems before any comments. However, based on our experiences, our word-riddle solution will be helpful. This method is incorporated into all our classes, which includes the Integrated Chinese Class and the Character Recognition Class.
As the old saying goes: INTEREST IS THE BEST TEACHER. If he has been viewing Chinese as a chore (burdened by spelling and endless homework that he may not even understand), he is definitely going to hate Chinese. Maybe it’s really time to make a change and expose him to an entirely new way of learning.
Well, no one will ever know if your child has not experienced it personally. You could always arrange to attend a paid trial class with us. After the lesson, ask your child whether he likes our class and could he learn anything out of the lesson. Communicate with our teacher who will discuss with you the problems he faced and provide our solutions. You could then decide from there.
