Bilingual Program

Bilingual Program

The Bilingual Program at WASS provides students with a unique opportunity to learn in an environment that supports language development in both English and Vietnamese. We offers bilingual teaching program of the Ministry of Education – Training of Vietnam, along with three subjects from the Australian curriculum – English, Mathematics and Science for students from year 1 to year 9. The programme is structured to ensure needed teaching time and classroom routines are split between the two programs.

Vietnamese and English teachers work closely together and all lessons are linked to the specific Unit of Inquiry. They also built upon previous learning, helping students to develop a good understanding of the concepts and objectives in both program, without wasting time on repetition. This ensures students stay engaged in their learning, as they are required to pay close attention in both programs and are able to make connections between what they are taught in Vietnamese and WA program.
