One World International School (OWIS) offers personalized, inquiry-based education for children aged 3 - 18, providing the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) for Early Childhood and Primary school learners, through to the Cambridge IGCSE and IBDP for secondary students. With over 70 nationalities on campus, they have a diverse community of students and teachers, which promotes an understanding of different perspectives and cultures, giving students an opportunity to identify themselves as part of a global community.

OWIS is excited to announce the introduction of a Chinese-English bilingual program for their primary school students from Grade 1 to Grade 5.

 

OWIS Chinese-English Bilingual Program Explained:

Immersive Experience

Students enrolling in this program will benefit from a truly bilingual environment where students receive almost equal instruction in English and Mandarin. This immersive experience is the best way for young learners to begin speaking, thinking, reading, and writing in two languages.

How is it incorporated? 

The bilingual program at OWIS aligns with the IB PYP and enables students to learn through inquiry in both languages. Students also receive weekly instruction in specialist subjects, including Art, Physical Education, and Music. Incorporating lessons about Chinese culture and literature and English-speaking countries' culture and literature, OWIS’s bilingual program allows students to enjoy an in-depth learning experience in both languages.

Who Will Teach The Chinese-English Bilingual Program?

OWIS’s highly qualified team of bilingual educators, fluent in Mandarin and English, will teach this program along with bilingual teaching assistants, allowing students to receive personalised instruction every step of the way.

Moderate Fee

"At OWIS, we are one of the few bilingual schools in Singapore that can offer a comprehensive bilingual education for a moderate fee," says Michelle Dickinson, Head of School at OWIS. "We believe that there are many benefits to bilingualism, and we would like any student who wants a bilingual education to have access to that experience."
