Tôi mạnh khỏe

“Tôi mạnh khỏe- Healthy me” is the second unit that the grade 1 students are currently working on. They are learning to name most of the typical Vietnamese food, fruits and drinks. After that, the students can sort out the healthy and unhealthy food. They can express what they like/ dislike and is able to suggest to each of everyone in their family what they should and should not eat in order to be healthy.

Bài 1- Chúng ta là ai?

“Chúng ta là ai- Who we are” is the first unit that the students are currently exploring in Vietnamese class. In this unit, the students are learning about colors, numbers and name of some countries and their family members. From that they can use simple sentence structures to introduce themselves, say what they like and what they do on their birthday. The students are engaged in different activities such as capturing the flags, color race, hopscotch… to practise the learnt language items.  

Here are some links that you can practise with your child at home:

Welcome to World Languages Blog

Dear Parents,
Welcome to our World Languages learning community! We would like to take this opportunity to introduce our team and share about how to use this blog to enhance our partnership to support students’ learning.

In our team, we have 3 Vietnamese teachers, 3 French teachers, 1 Chinese Mandarin teacher and 1 Teaching Assistant. All languages teachers are native speakers. More information of individual teacher’s bio can be found in the tab of “About Us” on this blog.

During the first two weeks of school, all of our World Languages classes are focused on Learning to Learn. Students are getting to know their teachers and their new classmates. In order to achieve the school goal towards Excellent Learning, in our classes, we established the class essential agreements and commitments to the actions of being a responsible learner of their own and for others. In the meantime, some basic classroom language is introduced so that students will be able to follow the directions in the target languages in everyday situation.

On the World Languages Blog this year, you will find the curriculum information, language learning information from respective teacher, and it also provides you the opportunity to talk with the children about what we are learning, what we have learned, and what we will learn throughout the year.

We hope you will find this site a useful communication channel between our team and you as parents.
