Highlights: Two native Mandarin and English speaking teachers work in close coordination to help students master both the languages
GIIS launched its bilingual programme in August 2020 at its SMART Campus. Open to all nationalities in Grades 1-5, the bilingual programme at GIIS offers equal exposure to English and Mandarin as part of the curriculum and is closely aligned to the IB Primary Years Programme framework.
Teachers who are proficient in both Mandarin and English deliver the curriculum in part English and part Mandarin; students in the bilingual programme attend classes that are separate from the mainstream IB PYP programme.
The school says: "By teaching them the world's most spoken language, Mandarin, we are giving our students a competitive edge over their peers. The Programme is aligned with our vision of nurturing future global citizens, and prepares students to handle diversity and broaden their horizons for a better career."
