關於「普教中」討論的反思

Reflections on the Discussion of Using Putonghua as the Medium of Instruction in Teaching Chinese

鄧城鋒(Shing-Fung TANG)

摘要

自從課程發展議會(2000)把用普通話教授中國語文科(普教中)定為長遠目標後,越來越多學校以不同的形式作「普教中」的嘗試,「普教中」在香港似乎是勢在必行。本文嘗試全面檢視關於「普教中」的討論和研究,結合香港及台灣地區的語言政策發展歷史,探討「普教中」這個課題的本質。目的是找出目前關於「普教中」的討論的不足之處,並建議進一步討論和研究的方向。

關鍵詞:普教中;教學語言;語言文化

Abstract

Since the Curriculum Development Council (CDC) (2000) confirmed that using Putonghua as the medium of instruction to teach the Chinese Language (PMI) would be a long-term goal, more and more local schools have attempted to practise PMI in different forms. It seems inevitable that PMI would be implemented in Hong Kong. Through a comprehensive review of the research on and the controversies over PMI, and the historical development of language policies in Hong Kong and Taiwan, this article scrutinizes the nature of the issue and aims to show the inadequacy of the current discourse. Directions for further inquiry into PMI are suggested.
