Learning Chinese in Hong Kong, non-Chinese speaking (NCS) students are less likely and less able to use Chinese in their daily lives. This Programme is supported by the Language Fund to design a collection of teaching materials for NCS students based on daily life situations in order to enhance their reading and speaking skills, and to encourage NCS parents to read together with their children, helping them learn Chinese on their own. The set of teaching materials is also free for public use.
