Oxfam Hong Kong |Survey on Chinese Learning Challenges of Ethnic Minority Kindergarten Students

Survey on the Chinese Learning Challenges faced by South Asian Ethnic Minority Kindergarten Students from Low-Income Families

Some of the main findings include:

  • The majority of the parents deemed learning Chinese important for their children’s future development and planned on sending their children to mainstream primary schools so they can learn Chinese.

  • Close to three-fifths of the parents were illiterate in Chinese, making it difficult to help their children learn Chinese

  • Close to 80 per cent of the parents reported that the kindergartens were the only places their children learnt Chinese

  • Over half of the kindergartens did not provide South Asian students with additional Chinese learning support
