Overview: Mandarin Program

The Lower School Mandarin Program is a two-track, multi-level language program

The Mandarin Learner Track is for students who study Mandarin as an additional language. The goal of study is to develop language skills in four areas – speaking, listening, reading & writing – with an emphasis on oral proficiency to set students on a course for more advanced Mandarin language study.

The Mandarin Heritage Track is for students whose first language (or strong additional language) is Mandarin. The goal of study is to develop and enhance students’ overall language proficiency, with the focus on reading and writing abilities.

All unit topics, teaching materials and activities are specifically designed and differentiated for TAS lower school students. Proficiency based courses offered within each track are: Foundation, Grade Level and Advanced.
