“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, it goes to his heart.” - Nelson Mandela

The benefits of learning a language other than our mother tongue has wide-reaching benefits. Our ambition for the children in our care is that they do not just learn another language but that they love that process.

Which is why all our children in Pre-Prep (Pre-Nursery to Year 1) will be immersed in a dual-language programme of study. We believe that this form of instruction instils a greater level of confidence in the learner, as well as a greater level of meta-linguistic awareness (in understanding how language works) across both their mother tongue and the foreign language.

Our children graduate from this dual-language environment from Year 2 upwards, continuing with daily Mandarin as part of the core curriculum.
