Learning & Teaching

Languages

Mandarin

We believe that learning a language has a positive impact on students’ ability to learn across the curriculum and that developing an understanding of Asia is very important for us as Australian citizens.

Therefore each week:

  • Teachers and students embrace opportunities to gain understanding of Chinese culture and the Mandarin language by participating in the My Chinese Teacher program, delivered via the internet from Beijing
  • Class teachers model good learning behaviours as they undertake learning the language with the students
  • Students engage in oral or written follow up activities with their class or as independent tasks
