In Prep-Prep, from Pre-Nursery to Year 1 inclusive, Mandarin is taught through the use of our highly-qualified Teaching Assistant team, who are native mandarin speakers. This dual-language approach to teaching supports natural language acquisition by interchanging between Mandarin and English as the means of communication throughout the day.
In Year 1, in addition to the above model, daily Mandarin lessons are delivered by specialist Mandarin teachers.
In Year 2 to Year 6 inclusive, at the Prep School, teaching is delivered in the medium of English and the children enjoy a daily Mandarin lesson with a native speaker.
From Year 1 upwards, daily classes will be streamed by ability to cater for each child’s needs.
