Mandarin immersion at a British school in Singapore

December 3, 2015

From 800 last year, it now has 1,300 students; expects 200 more by August

It is not just local parents. Expatriate parents recognise the value of mastering Mandarin, too.

The emphasis on Mandarin is one of the reasons why Dulwich College, a renowned British Independent school, which started with 800 students in Singapore last year, has grown its intake to 1,300 now. It expects to add another 200 students by next August.

In the college’s dual-language approach, children from the ages of two to seven are taught by two teachers, in English and Mandarin.
