English words are formed by the alphabet. What about Chinese? Schools may neglect to emphasize this, but 笔画 (bH huD) are the building blocks of Chinese characters. In our K1 programme, these essential strokes are thought over 4 terms. Children are encouraged to apply this knowledge of 笔画 when learning how to write new Chinese characters. Through fun and lively in-class exercise and practices, students are well-prepared and confident when learning more Chinese characters in Primary One.
