Course Description:

文言文指以先秦口語為基礎而形成的古代漢語書面語。對於學生而言,文言文往往是中國語文學習的主要難點,其原因大概是由於學生遇到文言字詞及特殊句式時,大多採用「死背硬記」的方式。事實上,此類學習方法不僅未能有效提昇閱讀及理解的能力,更大大降低了文言文的學習興趣,難以達致理想的學習效果。

有效掌握文言是正確通讀及理解古代篇章的關鍵,我們可以從而就作品進行客觀具體的分析、欣賞及評鑒。此外,我們更可通過文言篇章所蘊含的文化內涵,瞭解古代的歷史文化,認識古今漢語的傳承關係,提昇語文的基礎與素養。本課程以粵語為教學語言,對象是能初步掌握文言文的高中學生。課程由兩個主要部分構成:第一,我們將通過文言文篇章的精細講讀,深化學生於古代漢語的感性知識;第二,課程通過文言文知識的系統介紹,引領學生認識古今漢語的差異,從而掌握古今異義、文言字詞及特殊句法等現象。本課程理論與實用兼重,除了基礎理論的講授之外,更強調古漢語知識於具體語言分析中的運用,協助學生掌握正確通讀文言文的方法,提昇閱讀及理解古代篇章的能力。
