In today’s global economy, communicating with a wide and varied set of people is of paramount importance. While the ability to communicate fluently in English is still important, languages other than English have gained prominence in our global economy. Mandarin, in particular, is now spoken by a large population both in Singapore and across the globe — with some estimates claiming nearly 917 million people speak it fluently.
Recognising the importance of this language in Singapore, China and around the world, OWIS has created a Mandarin programme that allows students to become fluent in the language. The curriculum for our Mandarin programme includes oral communication, reading and writing Mandarin. The goal is for students to learn the language naturally in an age-appropriate setting.
