The Glen Waverley Primary School Languages Program engages students in grasping a new language and improving their Mandarin skills through a range of rigorous learning experiences. Targeting the complex language of Chinese through learning of conversational skills, reading and writing simplified Chinese characters, and integrating whole school inquiry-based topics, the program also deepens students’ understanding of Chinese culture through stories, songs, and cultural events.
What the students of GWPS say about the Language Program:
“I like Languages because we get to be creative in our projects: we get to make posters, PowerPoints, origami and we learn so much.”
“I like language class because it gives me more information and knowledge about other cultures and believes apart from my own.
