Visitors from Malawi

来自马拉维的访客

 采访、报道:陈湘颖(57班)

你见过说得一口流利华语,能背诵唐诗,还会中国武术的非洲人吗?

718日,武吉班让小学庆祝种族和谐日那天,就迎来了四名这样的访客。他们来自非洲的马拉维(Malawi,也称马拉威)。他们四人自小因为各种家庭因素入住ACC孤儿院,在孤儿院里的圆通学校学习华文和华族文化,所以才有这样的本事。

本校的小三学生有幸参加《乐学华文 点亮心灯》的活动,与他们在本校礼堂做近距离的交流。四名马拉维访客在台上以华语做自我介绍,并分享了学习华文的心得。过后,他们还为同学们朗读唐诗《游子吟》、背诵《弟子规》,以及呈现精彩的武术表演。同学们都报以热情的掌声。《乐学华文 点亮心灯》这项活动是在推广华文学习委员会的支持下,由新加坡ACC关怀中心和圆通学校联合主办的。

活动过后,我以本校小记者的身份,采访了其中两名马拉维的学生——阿莫和阿哲。

阿莫和阿哲的中文名字是ACC关怀中心里的老师或师父给他们起的。阿莫还说他名字里的“莫”是“莫言”的“莫”。我上网查了一下,才知道原来莫言是中国作家,曾获得诺贝尔文学奖。难怪阿莫说他的名字来跟一个很聪明的人有关!

阿莫和阿哲分别从六岁和九岁开始学华文,阿莫学习华文已有九年,年纪较小的阿哲也学了六年。开始的时候觉得华文很难,但老师告诉他们,世界上很多国家的人都在学习华文,以华文沟通,所以他们需要学习华文。阿莫也说,现在有很多中国人来马拉维投资,他们学好华文,将来可以做翻译的工作,为国家的发展做出贡献

Picture Book Reading Programme

Picture Book Reading Programme

To encourage pupils to read Chinese storybooks, the Picture Book Reading Programme was rolled out in Year 2010 and has been ongoing since then. It is well received by the Primary 1 and Primary 2 pupils. While reading the picture book together as a class, pupils will be posed questions about the story, prompting them to guess the storyline. After reading the book, pupils will need to complete an interesting activity and attractive prizes will be given to pupils who did the worksheet well. Their works will then be laminated and shown to other pupils. Through a series of such activities, we hope pupils will grow to love reading Chinese books.
