'A' Level Chinese @ RIJC

Postby ezmum » Thu Jan 07, 2010 8:57 pm

Hi,

My girl is currently schooling at RGS. She is keen to take up 'A' level Chinese but we understand that this is not available at RIJC.

Any one can advise? Thanks.

My dd is also in RGS sec 1 doing HCL, she has a keen interest in the laguage and wishes to continue in RIJC. But same as ezmum's gal, seems unable to do so, starting to feel that should have let her go to NYGH instead. Can anyone gives us some info?

Hi NatTifMummy, ezmum

I remember a talk was conducted by MT dept at the beginning of the year for Year 3 students and parents, to inform them of the plan for MT/HMT in RGS, as well as in RI-JC. The Chinese language curriculum in RI-JC is rather comprehensive too, it should be comparable to those offered by HCI or DHS. Don't forget, there are many Chinese scholars in RP!

Chinese modules in RI-JC include:
H1 Chinese (more for students who do not take HMT in RGS, or those who did HMT but didn't score A1 and aim to achieve a perfect score for 'A' levels)
H1 General Paper
H2 Chinese & Literature
H3 Chinese & Literature

There are also some bicultural programme and Chinese studies similar to those offered in SAP schools, but the difference is, RI-JC does not get funds from MOE in running these programmes.

Hope the information helps.
