The Bilingual Programme at SJI International enables students to become equally proficient in two languages, English and Chinese.
Our programme is designed for native and non-native speakers and follows a ten-day teaching cycle dividing the language of instruction by subject area and time. Alternating language instruction ensures equal commitment to both English and Chinese.
Students can develop their intercultural competence, thinking and analytical skills in meaningful ways through exposure to wide-ranging ideas and cultural perspectives. With increased creativity and cognitive flexibility, students will be well-prepared for their future as global citizens.
