Language learning is an important part of our learning philosophy at Dulwich. We believe that learning a language is essential to understanding the world and to appreciate the subtleties of cultural differences.
Dulwich College International schools have developed a strong Mandarin programme. At Dulwich College Shanghai Minhang, Mandarin is taught as a native language, second language and foreign language. Our progressive learning model includes a Dual Language approach in DUCKS. Throughout the College, Mandarin is taught daily and is streamed according to ability, from native speaker to absolute beginner. Student learning goes beyond speaking, listening, reading and writing to involve workshops and activities that immerse students in the richness of the Chinese culture.
