香港家長參與學童學習中文的調查研究

A Study of Parent Involvement in Children's Chinese Language Learning

文英玲(Ying-Ling MAN)

摘要

本研究旨在調查香港初小階段學童的家長對參與子女學習中文的看法。在成功收回的1,356份家長問卷及50份中文科教師問卷中發現,香港家長普遍滿意子女的中文表現。他們對支援子女學習中文抱積極正面的態度,然而他們深感缺乏有效的方法,故期望學校提供有關的支援。調查顯示,低收入及低學歷的家長,在物質和精神上都感到匱乏,期待支援。此外,香港中文科教師跟香港家長存在不同看法,亟須理解與交流,以促進學童學習中文的效能。

Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate the attitudes of parents of junior primary students toward involvements in their children's Chinese language learning. A total of 1,356 and 50 questionnaires were collected respectively from parents and Chinese language teachers for the investigation. In general, Hong Kong parents are found to be satisfied with their children's performance in Chinese language learning and they also have a positive attitude in supporting children's Chinese language learning. However, the data collected reveals that effectual supporting methods for the above are lacking and more related supports from schools are highly expected by parents. The investigation further reveals that those parents who have lower monthly household income and educational qualifications need more assistance, both materialistically and mentally. Moreover, because of different views of Chinese language teachers and parents on students' Chinese language learning, further communication and mutual understanding between the two parties are very much needed to facilitate the effectiveness of students' Chinese language learning.
