EtonHouse International School (Broadrick)

Bilingual programme: Mandarin-English
Annual tuition fees: $ 26,194-27,478
Age: Nursery to Year 6
Highlights: Dual language approach, two daily sessions focusing on reading and writing skills

EtonHouse’s Broadrick campus offers a bilingual pathway from nursery through to primary. Since 2001, this all-through school has been teaching a fully immersive bilingual option that is aligned with the IB’s Primary Years Programme. Teaching follows a dual language approach with two qualified teachers (one native Mandarin speaker and one native English speaker) in each classroom; they jointly plan and teach each lesson, “taking turns to deliver different parts of the class in their native tongues”.

The school’s bilingual programme follows on seamlessly from the Chinese language programme offered at EtonHouse’s pre-schools and kindergartens from the age of three.

As well as teaching how to speak, read, write and understand Mandarin, the programme “integrates culture into the curriculum to build an appreciation and love for the language”. Students also attend two daily 45-minute sessions – one for English and one for Mandarin – that focus on grammar, reading and writing skills.

The school says: “Your child will hone their speaking skills through song, poetry, presentations, conversations and reading aloud. They’ll soon be able to spontaneously engage those around them in both English and Mandarin.”
