The Standing Committee on Language Education and Research (SCOLAR) has launched the Incentive Scheme on the Development of Chinese Language Graded Readers for Non-Chinese Speaking Children and is now inviting applications.
The scheme is supported by the Language Fund. Eligible local organisations are invited to develop and publish Chinese language graded readers specifically designed for non-Chinese speaking children in Hong Kong, with a view to helping them develop an interest in and the habit of reading Chinese books, thereby enhancing their ability to use the Chinese language.
Local organisations interested in submitting applications may register the online briefing session for further details.
