A set of 10 games has been developed as Chinese language teaching aids to promote bilingualism among pre-school children aged four to six.
The game set, titled "Fun Games for Learning Mandarin", is believed to be the first that is locally developed to teach a mother tongue language to pre-school children here.
The teaching aids were jointly developed by the Singapore Centre for Chinese Language and NTUC's Seed Institute which trains pre-school teachers, with sponsorship from the Lee Kuan Yew Fund for Bilingualism.
The games were launched at the third International Conference on Teaching and Learning Chinese as a Second Language on Thursday, by Senior Minister of State for Finance and Transport Josephine Teo.
More than 3,000 game sets will be distributed to all pre-schools here next week.
