Singapore American School (SAS) recently launched a Chinese language and cultural immersion programme in Chinese. SAS currently has two full curriculum kindergarten Chinese immersion classes and it will launch two Grade 1 classes in August 2018; with each subsequent year, the programme will grow to add additional grade levels. Teaching follows a US-style curriculum.

The bilingual programme follows a 75/25 Chinese-English exposure model from kindergarten to Grade 1; 40/60 in Grades 2-3; and 50/50 immersion in Grades 4-5. From kindergarten to Grade 3, the programme focuses on one-way immersion for native English speakers learning Chinese only.
