Kindergartens in Hong Kong – level 2

26-05-2015 15:00

It is very important to get into a good school in Hong Kong. And to get into a good school, a child must get into a good kindergarten first.

There are even courses in Hong Kong which help children prepare for kindergarten interviews. The biggest value of one course is to take away the children’s fear. Instead of getting scared, the children think of the interview as a happy experience. It is like playing games.

A mother said that it is expensive to raise a child in Hong Kong. She said that everybody competes against each other. She feels a lot of pressure.

Difficult words: value (the thing which is useful, good), experience (a situation), compete (to try to be better than someone else).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
