In language learning, nothing’s more important than a strong foundation. That’s why the folks at SAS took the time (five years, to be exact!) to create a programme that truly immerses students in Chinese language. What started out as 31 kindergarten students enrolled across two classes is now a super hub of two full-curriculum Chinese language immersion classes in kindergarten and first grade. The best part? They get to do it in SAS’s flexible learning spaces (with moveable walls and all) where teachers get to collaborate!
A place where students don’t just learn a language, they use the language for learning
At SAS, students go beyond your typical 30 minute language classes to learn a language. They follow a 75/25 instruction model where classes such as music, art, and PE and daily English classes are the only English instruction they’ll get. Which is pretty amazing, considering the students aren’t native Chinese speakers.
If you’re looking for a school that’ll give your kids a deep understanding of the Chinese language, look no further than SAS. But don’t just take our word for it, go check it out for yourself!
