Bilingualism Talent Development

To nurture the DSA (Bilingual) students to be effectively bilingual and bicultural, the school offers programmes beyond the classroom. 

Students are given the opportunity to attend emcee and debate training, creative writing workshops, editing training and translation workshops. Students are expected to take advantage of one of these programmes to develop their linguistic and literary skills.  They will get to sharpen their skills of communication through these various platforms.  They are also encouraged to apply for these special programmes: Secondary 2 Literature Mentorship Programme, Upper Secondary Humanities Programme, Upper Secondary Bicultural Studies Programme and Chinese Language Elective Programme. Students are selected into these programmes based on their strengths.


双文化课程

南洋女中与华侨中学高中部开设的双文化课程旨在培养能够游刃于中西文化之间,兼具本土关怀及国际视野的双语双文化人才。此课程除了发掘学生的双语潜能,也重视培养她们的批判性思辨能力及文化智商。为期两年(中三及中四)的课程通过多元化的学习方式,如跨文化对比、历史分析及体验式学习,让学生从不同范畴及视角理解中西文化和当代中国的历史、社会、经济发展及国际关系。

双文化课程的学生将有机会到中国、东南亚,英国或美国浸濡,亲身体验文化差异,开拓视野。除此之外,为了提升学生的领导及翻译能力,双文化课程也为学生开办深广课程及举办才能培训活动,其中包括高年级翻译课程、专题作业研究课程、亚洲青少年双语模拟联合国会议及国会议员计划。

The Bicultural Studies Programme offered in Nanyang Girls’ High School and Hwa Chong Institution aims to nurture bilingual and bicultural students who are passionate about learning the cultures of the East and the West and are able to navigate across cultures confidently. With an emphasis on global outlook and cosmopolitanism in citizenship education, the two year programme adopts a variety of approaches such as cross-cultural comparison, historical analyses and experiential learning to cultivate the critical thinking and cultural competencies of students and deepen their understanding of the history, social, economic development and international relations of contemporary China.

Students enrolled in the BSP will have the opportunity to participate in an overseas immersion programme in China, Southeast Asia and the UK or the US, to gain a deeper appreciation of the different cultures and engage with experts in the field. In addition, to develop students’ translation and leadership skills, students are also exposed to a wide range of courses and talent development programmes including Advanced Translation course, Research skills programme, Bilingual Youth Model United Nations Conference, and Member of Parliament attachment programme.

语文特选课程 (语特)
Chinese Language Elective Program (CLEP)

为了栽培精通双语的人才,提高学生的华文水平和文学素养,教育部在2020年开办中学华文语文特选课程(简称中学语特),鼓励对华文和华文文学有浓厚兴趣的中学高年级学生加入。

学生将在此课程中通过文本分析、协作学习、戏剧教学等有趣的方式来赏析短篇小说、长篇小说、古代诗歌及现代诗歌。在这两年的课程中,我们希望将学生培养成华文文学的爱好者、善省思的读者、具有批判性思维的学习者、具有全球化视野的思辨者和具有创造力的创作者。

此外,为了培养学生的文学素养,南洋女中的语文特选课程为学生提供了丰富的深广课程与活动,其中包括在中三中四必修的华文文学鉴赏课程(Chinese Literature Appreciation Programme)、文学系列讲座、文学营、海外浸濡之旅、文学创作出版以及校本专题作业。

The Chinese Language Elective Programme at Secondary Level (CLEP-Sec) is introduced by the Ministry of Education to be implemented from 2020. It aims to nurture promising students to attain a high level of language proficiency in Chinese, and enhance their understanding of Chinese literature. The programme also aims to develop these students to become effectively bilingual so as to better serve the needs of our nation.

In this programme, students will be appreciating and analysing long and short novels, ancient and contemporary poetry,  through various approaches such as text analysis, collaborative learning and drama. The 2-year programme aims to nurture Asian Literature advocates, reflective readers, critical learners, global thinkers and inventive creators.

CLEP at NYGH provides a wide range of enrichment programmes and activities to enhance students’ learning and cultivate a deeper interest in Chinese Literature. These activities include the compulsory Sec 3-4 Chinese Literature Appreciation Programme (CLAP), Literary lecture series, camps, overseas immersion trips, publishing of literary works and school-based projects.

The Secondary 2 Literature Mentorship

Selected students are pulled out of some Language Arts lessons to study literature at greater breadth and depth.  They will complete readings, writing tasks, discussions and projects.

Humanities Programme (HP)

The Upper Secondary Humanities Programme is open to students who show good aptitude and attitude, especially in Literature and the humanities.  Students in the programme study Advanced Literature (HP), using texts that explore complex themes and issues.  They are required to do a comparative literary response to both prose and poetry. The research-based critical essay requires more rigorous research and critical reading of scholarly works.
