Abstract: To meet the changing needs of a student population that is increasingly diversified in terms of the language spoken at home, the new Chinese Language (CL) Modular Curriculum was formally launched in Singapore primary schools in 2007. Under the modular approach, students are streamed into three modules according to their language proficiency and exposure to CL. This project aimed to provide a quantitative and qualitative evaluation of this curriculum with a special focus on students' oral communicative skill (OCS). The project's findings reveal the effectiveness of the new curriculum in terms of students' oral performance and feelings towards the learning environments of CL classes; teachers' views about the implementation and impact of the new curriculum; and improvement of students' OCS from Primary 1 to 4.
Description: This brief was based on the project OER 11/08 ZSH: Study of Chinese Language Oral Competence of Primary School Students - Exploring Effectiveness of the Newly Implemented Curriculum.
