Mandarin classes in Sri UCSI Secondary School are for all students. There are 3 periods of Mandarin a week in the students’ time-table. Each class is divided into 3 sets – Set 1, Set 2 and Set 3 based on the students’ proficiency in the language.
• Set 1 students will eventually take Mandarin as an exam subject for their PT3 and SPM examination. The Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (also known as Chinese Proficiency Test/ HSK) is optional for them.
• Set 2 students will not take Mandarin as an exam subject for PT3 and SPM, but it is compulsory for them to sit for the HSK exam.
• Set 3 students learn simple communicative skills in Mandarin. Daily lessons include making sentences, reading simple comprehension texts, simple poems, grammar and vocabulary.
Among our Form 3 students, we have some youth reporters who report to the Sin Chew Daily. We also have students participating in the annual winter camp held in China in the month of December.
