In PYP period, Chinese class adheres to interdisciplinary philosophy and the six inquiry themes. Students are grouped into Advanced class (mother tongue and near mother tongue), Intermediate class (non-native speaker intermediate level) and Beginner class (non-native speaker beginning level). In Advanced classes, Chinese language learning not only clings to the UOI their homeroom is proceeding, but also refer to local education framework. Selected readings related to UOI theme from local textbooks are used for vocabulary learning, reading comprehension, writing and oral communication. All practices obey to Chinese language features. In non-native speaker classes, UOI theme is followed as well, and students’ abilities in listening, speaking, reading and writing are practiced. Their overall language level is thus enhanced.
Students also have chances to participate in events organized by local communities, including Chinese competition for foreigners and writing competition for native speakers. We are proud of the results they have received!
