The “Chinese Language Learning Progression Framework for Non-Chinese Speaking Children in Kindergartens in Hong Kong” intends to describe the progress of learning Chinese for non-Chinese speaking children in kindergartens. The framework provides indicators of language awareness, language skills and affective attitude in listening, speaking, reading and writing. As a reference framework for teachers and different stakeholders, it could be utilised to understand children’s learning progress and proficiency in Chinese.
The project is funded by the Quality Education Fund (Project No.: 2013/0076). The funding support is gratefully acknowledged.
The project wishes to thank all the schools involved in the development of the “Chinese Language Learning Progression Framework for Non-Chinese Speaking Children in Kindergartens in Hong Kong”. We would like to extend appreciation to the school principals, teachers, children and parents, and the professionals for their valuable input.
