Wellington College Launched Dual-Language Programme

This year, Wellington College International Shanghai has introduced an all-new dual-language programme for its youngest pupils. With this ambitious pilot project, the College aims to create fully bilingual, biliterate and bicultural pupils through immersion in a dual Chinese and English learning environment. Pupils enrolled in this programme learn every subject, from maths to social studies, in both English and Chinese. Their second language is thus no longer just one of several academic subjects; it is a medium of instruction in the classroom all day. As a result, they not only learn both languages, they learn how to learn in the languages.
