Why English-Chinese Schools are the Future






As Europe?s first English-Chinese Prep School opens its doors, Jo Wallace, Headteacher at Kensington Wade, explains why learning in two languages is better than one
Imagine the following scenario: you are a parent who is considering sending your child to Kensington Wade ? Europe?s first dual language English-Chinese Prep School. Will this environment be confusing to your child" How will you know they will hit the right levels of attainment" Will other subjects be dropped to learn Chinese" And how will you support your child if you don?t speak the language"
These are reasonable questions that I face each day from prospective parents. But do they have anything to be worried about" The answer is categorically ?no?. Receiving a dual-language immersion education is the opposite ? it?s a massive advantage, and

on many levels.
An equal split of each
Let?s be clear what dual language immersion education actually means. It is not a vast number of extra foreign language lessons. Our current Early Years timetable is exactly the same as a similar class in any other Prep School, the difference being that for half of each day, the teaching is in Chinese.
So, is Kensington Wade purely for mother-tongue Chinese speakers" Not at all ? these children are in fact the minority, and over half of our first cohort spoke no Chinese at all when they first started.
Above, both the English and Chinese classrooms are practically identical
Set out as identically as possible are our two Early Years? classrooms, but while one is typically English, the other has labels and reading books in Chinese. We support role play with Chinese tea sets and Chinese dressing-up clothes, with calligraphy brushes alongside crayons, and next to the usual percussion set lie an array of Chinese musical instruments. And because children are immersed in this environment from an early age, they accept it as normal. Kensington Wade is first and foremost

a British Prep School and that is my background, having previously been Head of Putney High Junior School for six years. However, a trip to China before the school opened and discussions with Chinese colleagues have both helped me, as Headteacher, to incorporate the best of Chinese teaching practice.
Establishing a curriculum
At the National Chinese Language Conference in the USA, I consulted with professionals who have been offering this type of education for 35 years. And, following this, I was able to select a Chinese reading scheme that not only tracks progress, just as you would expect from any UK programme, but also incorporates a karaoke-style app so non-Chinese-speaking parents can hear the correct pronunciation. This is great fun and especially helpful for homework.
In the coming decades, dual-language education won?t be a case of ?why bother"?, but a ?must-have?. Scientific research shows bilingualism not only gives social and cultural advantages, but an extra gear in linguistic and cognitive abilit...
