Vision

Active Users, Confident Speakers of the Mother Tongue Language


Mission

Our mission is to enable our students to use the language effectively and to develop their understanding and love of their culture and language, and yet play their role well as global citizens.

The study of Mother Tongue Languages (MTL) supports our students to gain a deeper understanding of their MTL, culture and heritage. We want our students to enjoy MTL as a living language with a rich culture and heritage.

To sustain students’ interest in their MTLs, it is the Department’s responsibility to design interactive lessons and to provide real and relevant contexts. It is hoped that through this, they will see a purpose to their language learning and develop skills that they can use and enjoy in work and leisure throughout their lives.
