Taiwan Immersion Trip (Selected P5 Scholar Class Students)

Since 2007, we have been collaborating with Zhi Qing Elementary School to organize immersion programme for our pupils. We would like our pupils to be immersed in an environment where Mandarin is the dominant language so as to enhance their Chinese oral and listening skills. Pupils will have a chance to visit Taiwan and study in Zhi Qing Elementary for about a week. 

Pupils who are involved in this trip will post their reflections on the following blog: http://www.tkptaiwanimmersion.blogspot.com/
