Dulwich Shanghai to Launch Dual Language Model at DUCKS

Staff at Dulwich College Shanghai are extremely excited to offer the Dual Language Model at DUCKS from the 2013/14 academic year.

This means children at Dulwich will learn in an environment rich in both English and Mandarin, enabling them to move seamlessly between both languages. Within the framework of the English National Curriculum, linguistic development in both languages will receive equal attention and be tailored to meet each child’s individual needs.

Children who are bilingual are better prepared to succeed in life. It is well documented that children’s cognitive development is at a higher than expected level when they learn in a multi-lingual environment. Dulwich College wants to ensure that all children attain the best possible learning outcomes. Young children are highly receptive to language acquisition and in the dual language program they will develop meta-linguistic awareness – an understanding of how language works. Meanwhile, the importance of Mandarin as a global language is increasingly recognized.
