After School Chinese at Yarraville West

The Confucius Institute at La Trobe University has entered into an agreement with Yarraville West Primary School (YWPS) to deliver after school Chinese language courses to interested students.

Chinese language does not form part of YWPS's formal curriculum, however, with the rise of Asia and China specifically in the global political and economic arena, there is increasing interest amongst the school community to expose students to Asian language and culture. With an already crowded curriculum, the after school Chinese program offers a workable solution.

As an after school program, learning is delivered in an engaging and fun environment to composite classes using contemporary teaching methods. The teaching focus is not only on developing foundational language skills but also on uncovering the rich Chinese cultural heritage. Two separate courses are running at YWPS: a Foundation and Level 1 course.

The partnership with YWPS ultimately creates advantage for its students by enabling opportunity and confidence to pursue Chinese language learning at higher levels of schooling.

If you or your school are interested in how our Institute might partner with you to create similar opportunities, please contact us to discuss.
