Academic excellence fostering a love of learning
Our students learn Mandarin Chinese by living it. 70% of classes are taught in Mandarin Chinese and daily tasks, such as putting on one’s shoes, going to recess, or washing one’s hands, are discussed in Chinese. In addition, 20% of the class time is conducted in English and 10% in Spanish. This not only enhances brain development, but also teaches practical life skills.
While doing so, we uphold high standards for English reading, writing and grammar.
Topic Centered Learning
We delve into topics and discuss each one in each of the 3 languages. Then, we examine it from a variety of angles (geographical, historical, scientific, and so on). Next, the students learn vocabulary and grammar through reading and writing about the topic. Finally, students practice speaking publicly about what they have learned, integrating their understanding on all realms.
