The curriculum uses Odonata Chinese Books from Malaysia that teaches students Mandarin step by step. It progressively builds the student’s vocabulary through the different set of books systematically. In this system, a story introduces a few characters at a time, and the new characters are frequently re-used in different contexts. The progressive vocabulary building process is conducted in a series of short sentences. The learners not only learn the new words, but also the meanings, grammatical knowledge and how a same word carry different meanings in different context of sentences.
