Discuss Current Affairs in Mandarin

Develop critical thinking skills and articulate view on current affairs topics in Mandarin confidently. Pick up relevant keywords and phrases related to commonly tested topics. Broaden your horizons as you consider various perspectives with your classmates.

Master Textbook Vocabulary

It is imperative to master textbook vocabulary so that you possess the foundation to attempt higher order questions in the exam paper. We provide exercises that you help consolidate the vocabulary you have learnt and ensure you can secure as many marks as possible in these sections of the exam paper.

Annual Revision of Curriculum

We revise our curriculum annually to reflect the latest trends and exam formats. Our current curriculum is based on the G3 Express and G3 Higher Chinese textbook.

Concise Study Guides

We provide students with concise study guides that summarise the various types of questions and answering techniques suited for each type of question. Students will also be taught to analyse questions so they can approach questions from an examiner's point of view.

Why Pick Hua’s Secondary School Programme?
Curriculum by ex-MOE Specialist Inspector

Having worked with children of all ages since 1992, we understand what children need at each stage of development. Huá is co-founded by an ex-MOE Chinese Language Specialist Inspector who is also a prominent member of the Singapore Chinese literary scene. Our decades of experience gives us insight on what troubles learners and pay special attention to such topics.

Analyse, Analyse, Analyse

Besides Mandarin proficiency, we believe it is important for Secondary school students to hone their critical thinking skills. We teach students to analyse exam questions, analyse strengths and weaknesses of argument points, and analyse passages to find focal points of each paragraph.

Learning is Interesting

We believe in keeping learning interesting as self-motivation is a powerful catalyst for learning. For example, we discuss Chinese pop culture and the latest technological trends to keep students connected with the Mandarin speaking world and realise the value of mastering Mandarin.

Passionate Teachers

Our dedicated teachers have years of experience to make learning effective yet enjoyable. All our teachers are native Mandarin speakers and are registered with MOE. They are guided by ex-MOE teachers to assist students in overcoming topics they struggle to grasp in school.

Hear from our Students and Parents

Hua Language Centre has made learning Chinese easier for my son, allowing him to improve in his written as well as conversation. Teachers always try their best to ensure my son understands the lessons and I’m grateful for their effort. Thank you for helping him to obtain good grade in both his PSLE and O Level. Cheers for this 30th Anniversary!!!!!

Mother of Joshua Kadir (Sec 4 Express Chinese)

My child has been with Hua since 5 years old and is now in Sec 4. He has enjoyed his lessons and has shown tremendous improvement over the years. A good job done by the teachers who guided him along the way.

Mother of Joson See (Sec 4 Higher Chinese)

我到华语文中心上课前 , 在新加坡学校的小二年中考试时华文成绩不及格了!那时,我真的无法应付华文,甚至十分讨厌华文课。我来自澳洲,华文程度不太好,过去一直认为学华文是没用的。我第一次来到华时,其实我很害怕,觉得同学的华文成绩一定很好,他们一定会嘲笑我。我最大的问题是不了解老师说什么!可是,我上了几次华语文中心的课以后,就不再担心了。因为我那时的老师性格很温柔,我无法理解她的说话时,她就会英文给我解释。一年,两年,三年很快过去了。我的华文试卷从十七分提升到了八十五分。小六会考来临时,我非常紧张。但是,我考到了AL1,对华语文中心,我真的很感恩。

Kezia Sin, Secondary 1 student

My 2 children started attending lessons at Hua Language Centre since they were in preschool, right up to their O Levels. They literally grew up with the Centre.

I was confident to entrust my children with Hua, knowing that the teachers would do their utmost best to help them achieve excellent results in school. The materials provided by Hua are also of high standard. And over all those years, I have seen the commitment, dedicated effort and care of the teachers so much so that my children both scored A* in their PSLE Higher Chinese and As in their O Level exams. This to me was very significant since we do not speak Chinese at home.

From my children’s excellent performance in their National exams, I am grateful to Hua Language Centre. I strongly recommend Hua Language Centre to all pupils willing to work hard and grow with the teachers at the Centre to improve their Chinese Language.
