Bilingualism is a 21st Century skill to help one gain a competitive edge and have a better understanding of different cultures in this increasingly globalised world. One of Britannica’s main goals is to enable our students to have bilingual fluency in not only English, our main teaching and learning language, but also Chinese as an additional language. This distinctive combination allows our children to underpin and master the curriculum.
To give our interested parents first-hand insights into our Mandarin programme, our next online webinar live stream will focus on the Chinese native language teaching philosophy and methodology we employ.
This is the Very First Time both leaders of our Mandarin Programme appear online to meet parents. Therefore, please don’t hesitate to sign up.
