Kingston International School

Approaches to Learning

  • Bilingualism

The bilingual nature of Kingston makes it truly unique. Putonghua and English are the languages of instruction at Kingston with the expectations that students work and participate in both languages. Every class has one native speaking fully qualified Putonghua teacher and one native speaking fully qualified English teacher.

Each day students spend a portion of the day immersed in English and a portion immersed in Putonghua with the rest of the day spent working in both languages.

We are very proud of our students' abilities in both languages. We provide the perfect environment for native fluency in both English and Putonghua. Our small class numbers and high teacher-to-student ratio form the cornerstone of our bilingual approach, which is delivered through the IBPYP framework.
