The advantage of being bilingual goes beyond the ability to speak and understand two languages. Being bilingual has a profound effect on the wiring of a child’s brain from young. A bilingual child has better focus and increased mental flexibility, which significantly enhances cognitive skills. These include problem solving skills, multi-tasking skills, and creativity.
Children are exposed to learning in both English and Chinese through thematic lessons and activities. In addition, the bilingual curriculum includes skill-based lessons that help children build a sound foundation in both languages.
In the English curriculum, children are introduced to the alphabet, letter sounds, and high-frequency words through reading, listening, and speaking activities. Writing exercises are also included for upper levels for both languages.
