In every aspect of school life students are given an appreciation of the perspectives of people from other cultures, regions and nations. An exciting and unique opportunity provided for all Elizabeth Hall students is the study of Chinese as their world language. All students participate in the Chinese program. The goal of this program is for students to acquire the foundation of listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in Chinese.
Students are taught a secondary language through everyday classroom conversational situations and subject content instruction, which makes language learning more meaningful. Students enter the Chinese program in our Hi-5 program through the fifth grade. We promote knowledge about Chinese culture, positive attitudes toward the Chinese language and multicultural attitudes, and knowledge towards other cultures and languages.
So why learn Chinese?
