Fast Facts

Yuquan Language School, founded in 1997, is a professional language school with a team of professional graduate teachers from various universities in China. Our Language teachers have solid teaching foundations and are responsible and conscientious.

Yuquan Language School has researched and analysed many advanced teaching methods from China and combined them with local methods to suit our local Southeast Asian requirements. The teaching methods selected allow students to be taught according to their aptitudes and make the learning of Chinese enjoyable. From here, a set of creative and effective teaching experiences was consolidated which made the achievement of good teaching results possible. The Chinese Zijing, Chinese Idioms Literacy COOL and Chinese Speed Reading introduced in 2003 and 2005 respectively paved the way for the new approach “to recognise characters before learning how to write characters”. This new approach was highly publicised by various media and brought about great interest from the public.

Our unique learning methods of literacy recognition have proven its success from the thriving business of the Yuquan language School and wide media coverage, both locally and in the region.

Programmes Offered

Foundation in Chinese
It is never too early to lay a good foundation in Chinese. At Yuquan, children start as early as 1 year old. The programmes are designed to first cultivate and nurture the love for the Chinese language rather than rote learning. This is done through fun and games and a wide variety of content.

Chinese Enrichment Courses
Yuquan understands the MOE syllabus well and understands the challenges a child goes through at each different level as he/she moves from Primary 1 to Secondary 4. At Yuquan, every level is targeted to build up a stronger foundation on the previous level, to a point where Chinese becomes a second nature to the child, not something to be learnt for just passing the exams but also a way of living, a part of the culture that he/she truly enjoys.

Chinese Reading Programme
Running parallel to the courses catered to the different age groups, a child can start with the Chinese Reading Programme (Basic) as early as 4 years old. The programmes are based on our trademark set of materials , which was specially designed in-house by our Founder and Principal Ms. Sonya Song Yuhong. From Basic to Advanced 2, there are five levels and 175 lessons in total, each lesson 1.5 hours. The objective of the programmes is to give the child a strong foundation in word recognition and reading so that mastery of the Chinese language, be it essay writing, oral or comprehension, becomes effortless.

Holiday Classes
During every school holdiay, Yuquan will organise interesting holiday classes to expose children to various aspects of the Chinese language and culture.
