The Hong Kong Institute of Languages Offers Fun New Courses for Kids

By Sponsored content 11 January 2017
If you or your little ones are looking to brush up on your language skills, then it might be time to enrol with the Hong Kong Institute of Languages. The Institute, which has been teaching seven languages to Hong Kong’s families, corporations and schools for 34 years, is offering new French language programmes as well as introductory courses for Mandarin and Cantonese this Chinese New Year.

The French Connection

The new French Language Foundation course is specifically designed for children aged 4 and 6 and 7 and 12, and aims to teach kids basic French and enhance their learning through the teaching of fundamental aspects of the French culture, such as French festivals, cuisine, iconic places, famous artists, and more. While each lesson is structured around a defined learning outcome, the course is fun and engaging and children learn through structured creative activities that bring the French language to life. At the end of the course, students will be able to progress to Beginner 2 Level, which has the added benefit of assisting children with their applications to good Primary Schools that teach French as an optional language class.

Chinese New Year Camps 

The Hong Kong Institute of Languages also offers dedicated language camps for children during Easter, Summer, Winter, and Christmas. For Chinese New Year, the school is offering introductory courses for Mandarin and Cantonese in the forms of camps which are culturally enriching and place an emphasis on the spoken language. The camps aim to encourage children to speak as much as possible and become actively involved in each lesson.

HK Kidz Language School

The HK Kidz language school offers children aged from 1.5 to 12 years old a fun and engaging way to improve their language skills through stimulating learning activities. HK Kidz has developed a creative proven approach to teaching languages, which focuses on giving youngsters positive reinforcement to boost their confidence while strengthening their ability to communicate in a different language. Classes are 100 percent face to face in dedicated facilities designed for children’s learning, and the languages taught include English, French, German, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Japanese.
