Our Mother Tongues as Living Languages

Online registration for Mother Tongue Languages (MTL) Symposium 2015 sharing sessions and workshops is now open!

Keen in nurturing a love for Mother Tongue Languages in children? The Mother Tongue Languages (MTL) Symposium is back again this year to help you do that! Be inspired by our speakers and pick up useful advice from local and international experts on how we can help children enjoy learning and using their MTL!

The 4th MTL Symposium will be held on Saturday, 29 August 2015, from 11 am to 8pm, at the Suntec Singapore Exhibition and Convention Centre. Themed “Our Mother Tongues as Living Languages”, this year’s MTL Symposium emphasises the importance of building a firm MTL foundation from young and how the family can help the child acquire the MTL confidently.

Into its fourth year, the MTL Symposium aims to bring together Singapore schools and the community to share their collective efforts in developing our children as active learners and proficient users of MTL. As in previous years, the focus of the Symposium will be on children from pre-school to lower primary levels. The emphasis will be on the importance of creating a home environment that is supportive of MTL acquisition.

The Symposium will feature a total of 20 sharing sessions and workshops, and 40 exhibition booths.

Sharing sessions and workshops: Participants can learn from local and international experts, and invited parent speakers, on fun and engaging ways to involve children in the learning of MTL. An informative session on the revised 2015 Primary School MTL Curriculum will be conducted by curriculum developers from MOE. Registration for the sharing sessions and workshops is now open to the public at www.mtls.com.sg.

Exhibition booths: Set up by pre-school centres, schools and community partners, parents and educators can explore fun and innovative ways of igniting a child’s love for MTL learning.

A new feature in the symposium this year is the sale of a wide range of selected MTL learning resources. Children can also participate in “The MTL Challenge” activities at various booths, win attractive prizes, and be treated to an all-day programme of storytelling and performances at the MTL Wonderland.

Admission to the Symposium is free. The first 5,000 visitors will receive a goody bag. Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis. Members of the public may visit the website www.mtls.com.sg for a list of activities and exhibitions at the MTL Symposium and to register their interest.

What are the new differences that have emerged in the recent past and how do we propose to overcome them? How will we wrestle with that persistent problem of multi-racial, multi-religious, multi-cultural, multi-diverse societies: Fashion unity out of differences?

About Steve Jobs

A child put up for adoption soon after birth, a college dropout who just had a single calligraphy course as his formal education could never have been a millionaire until he is Steve Jobs.

Now this name is synonymous with élan. Jobs preached that no matter what happens in your life, struggles in school or an unsuccessful career path—every aspect will somehow help you down the road. “Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards,” Jobs said. “So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something—your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” Jobs gave an inspiring commencement address at Stanford in 2005. Though he is not with us anymore, he made sure that he leaves behind a giant company we all know it today as the Apple.
