OBJECTIVES

What Makes Our Hokkien Workshop Different?

Z

Building Vocabulary, the Singaporean Way

Singapore Hokkien is unique as there are many pronunciation variations for the same word. While you can find established romanization systems or dictionaries online (e.g., Pe̍h-ōe-jī or Taiwan Romanization System), chances are, it is not how we will say it in Singapore.

In fact, a big part of your beginner’s workshop is to build up your Singapore Hokkien vocabulary. Besides learning about the basic traits of Singapore Hokkien, you will be given comprehensive notes which cover many topics. In addition, your tutor makes an extensive effort to listen and correct your pronunciation. In this way, learning becomes easier.

Z

Efficient Learning through Fun Activities

Traditional language classes spend many sessions building vocabulary by repeating each word after the tutor multiple times. For us, we believe that if learning is not fun, you will lose the motivation to learn. Hence, it would not be effective even if you sit through many lessons.

This is why during your 6 x 1.5-hour Hokkien workshop, you will be engaged in many activities. We don’t want to give your surprises away, but let’s just say, time often flies by in a flash. By the end of your workshop, you will walk away with an improved standard of Singapore Hokkien.
