    • Yew Chung International School of Qingdao’s Chinese Language and Culture Programme is the thriving cornerstone of the globally progressive education we provide, and it foster their cross-cultural thinking and open-mindedness. Furthermore, in order to develop a deeper understanding of the language, our students also study Chinese culture. In addition to daily language lessons, our students in Years 1-9 take one hour of Chinese culture lessons per week as part of our Chinese Studies Course. The learning topics are diverse, and integrate subjects such as History, Geography, Literature, Art and Music, and Traditional Festivals, adding meaningful context to the Chinese language students are studying in class.

      Last week was the Chinese traditional festival, Mid-autumn festival, our primary students learned the origin of the Mid-autumn festival and different customs through classroom practice in Chinese Language and Culture Programme. Please have a look at the Mid-Autumn poems our Year 4a students wrote their own.
