What is Learn My Dialect?
Learn My Dialect (LMD) is a programme by Viriya Community Services (VCS) and supported by C3A to empower seniors to share their knowledge of dialect. Through the interaction, LMD also promotes inter-generation understanding and bonding while passing on important cultural roots and life lessons from the seniors to the young. The programme enables the seniors to remain connected to society, build up their social network and bridge the communication gap with the young to enhance inter-generational bonding.
How does it work?
LMD taps on the potential and skills of our seniors to benefit their peers, as well as the society. The elderly would teach dialects to interested participants such as students, healthcare professionals and social workers.
Seniors participating in the programme would sit in to observe prevailing classes before taking up the teaching assignment. Seniors are encouraged to share their teaching experiences among the peers to enhance their teaching skills during our focus meetings.
