In this session, Dr Lum will share the use of songs composed by local writers, to pique children’s interest in learning Chinese. Dr Lum has many years of experience working with young children, and has used her deep familiarity with how children learn and play to capture vivid and interesting moments of children's lives in song. In this workshop, she will guide participants how to use these locally composed Chinese songs to arouse children’s interest in learning Chinese. The workshop consists of several segments including picture books and songs, games and songs, rhythm and songs.
