In an editorial featured Dr Wong Lung Hsiang, who is a senior research scientist from NIE, gave expert comments on the importance of parents in children’s learning of Chinese language. Dr Wong noted that it was more effective to let children use the Chinese language as part of their day-to-day living compared to answering practice questions to improve their grasp of the language. He also shared that it was important for teachers to encourage parents to participate in activities with their children to help them improve their Chinese language.
