Department recognises the challenges faced by the 21st Century
students in the learning of the Mother Tongue Languages and hence aims to
develop the students’ interest and love for the Mother Tongue Languages through
a repertoire of pedagogical strategies to equip them with the four main types
of language skills, which are listening, oral, reading and writing skills.
Opportunities to participate in various MTL related competitions are also
provided for students to hone their language skills and to increase their level
The school’s Applied Learning Programme (ALP) which is the Journalism and Broadcasting Programme, supports and complements the learning of Mother Tongue Languages in Holy Innocents’ High School. With the exposure to journalism and broadcasting topics within the MTL curriculum, students are able to transfer their learning of their language skills into actual application of the skills through journal writing, news reporting, audio and video recordings.
Besides equipping students with the necessary language skills, the Mother Tongue Languages teachers also hope to inculcate positive moral values as well as to impart cultural knowledge to our students so that they have a strong sense of identity towards their own heritage and culture through regular conversation and discussion during lessons as well as the cultural activities to enrich their cultural experiences.
