KPCC/GAPSK Classes (3-7 years)
 
This course helps children prepare for the KPCC and GAPSK examinations.
 
The KPCC (Kiddies' Putonghua Certificate in Communication) examination is organized by the China Artist Association and Beijing Tsinghua EUNIS Education Board. It is an open examination available for Hong Kong nursery and kindergarten children aged between 3 – 7 years old (PN-K3). The testing lasts 8 - 10 minutes, and includes Putonghua listening, conversation and poem recital in only oral format. Children are graded based on their pronunciation, comprehension and recital skills. There are six examinations per year with 3 different levels that children can apply for: Junior Level, Intermediate Level, and Senior Level. Every student is presented with a report card and for those who pass the examination, they are awarded a certificate by the KPCC. Examination Fee is $300-$360 per student.
 
 
The GAPSK examination is developed by the China National Education Board and Beijing University Language Education Department.
