Tri-lingual Curriculum English, Mandarin, Thai

 

The ability to use a language other than English and move between cultures is important for full participation in the modern world, especially in the context of increasing globalisation and cultural diversity. The ability for one to be able to communicate, read and write in the 3 languages (English, Mandairn, Thai) will open up a world of opportunities, especially for those who live in this part of the world. 

Implementing a combination of the highly renowned Australian English curriculum with the rigorous Singaporean Mandarin program and the Thai National curriculum, our language program focuses on the mastery of language and its application to real-life situations. Our curriculum organisation enables students to develop a flow of understanding across the subjects through the study of developmentally appropriate topic based units. Lessons are designed to provide authentic contexts for learning, which increase in language complexity and foster confidence to speak, listen, read and write in the languages. Regular revision lessons are included to consolidate learning and apply the newly acquired language to new situations.  Throughout their schooling, our students are constantly challenged by a stimulating, collaborative environment, where their individuality is valued and exploration of individual interests is encouraged. 

Infused throughout the curriculum are opportunities for students to develop their communication skills in speaking, reading and writing in all of the 3 languages, as well as using them in their daily life.  Our distinctive teaching program and meticulous assessment standards, which includes the Australian NAPLAN, the HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi) Mandarin Assessment, ensure that our students will progress with confidence, knowing that they are well-prepared for the globalised economy.
