Dulwich College (Singapore)

Dual language programme: Mandarin-English
Annual tuition fees: $29,200-36,200
Age range: Toddler to Year 2
Highlights: Dual language programme is taught to all students, teaching aligned with the UK curriculum

Dulwich College (Singapore) immerses pre-schoolers and primary students in a dual-language environment where “purposeful play is combined with a focus on learning to read and beginning to write in both English and Mandarin”. Lessons are taught by a native English-speaking lead teacher with a Mandarin-speaking assistant teacher to children from the ages of three to seven.

The dual language immersion programme runs from nursery to Year 2, known as DUCKS, and teaching follows the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. The timetable also includes daily Mandarin classes from the age of four, which are streamed according to ability.

The school says: “Our dual language approach in DUCKS gives our youngest students an opportunity to become comfortable speaking two languages at an early age… Within the framework of the English National Curriculum, linguistic development in both languages will receive equal attention and be tailored to meet each child’s individual needs.”
