by Raquel Carvalho
SCMP article based around the release of The Zubin Foundation's research report: Securing a Good Start for students of Chinese as an Additional Language in Kindergarten. (click here for original report).
The study found teachers struggle with a lack of instructional resources and materials for non-native speakers to learn the Chinese language.
Foundation project manager Maggie Holmes, one of the study’s authors, believed the heart of the problem to be a lack of instructional resources for teachers, who are often busy and have difficulty giving individualised attention.
