Bilingualism

 

EtonHouse schools offer an exceptional bilingual programme and are recognized as a leading provider of an authentic dual language curriculum. At EtonHouse, children are immersed in an integrated bilingual environment where each classroom has an English and a Mandarin speaking teacher at all times interacting with the children in two languages. With exposure to both languages throughout the day, children pick up the skills and knowledge to think and understand concepts in two different languages and communicate effectively in them. Language learning goes beyond reading, writing, listening and speaking. EtonHouse International Pre-School provides many opportunities for children to immerse in and appreciate the Chinese culture. Such experiences in calligraphy, painting, Chinese chess, tea ceremonies etc. develop in children an interest and love for the language from a very young age. Students at EtonHouse International Pre-School therefore learn both languages in a spontaneous and natural dual language environment that makes the language acquisition process meaningful and relevant.
