P.5 to S.4 are the best time to enroll. If children study abroad before P.5, they will easily lose their Chinese ability. Therefore, it is better to go overseas to study abroad only after the child has a certain Chinese foundation in P.5 or later.
Of course, parents should also consider their children’s wishes and personality. If children have low self-discipline, it may not be good to go abroad too early. We recommend that children enter Year 9 in Australian schools (i.e. S.3 in Hong Kong), but parents should prepare for their children at least 12 months in advance.
