Bài một – Tết Trung Thu

“Tết Trung Thu- Moon Festival” is the first unit that students are currently exploring in Vietnamese class. The students are inquiring into how celebrations and traditions are expressions of shared beliefs and values.  The students are engaged in different activities such as listening to the story of Cuội, making Mooncakes, and practising for Moon Festival Assembly. Through these activities, the students will have a better understanding of what Moon Festival is and how Vietnamese people celebrate it.

Tet Trung Thu – Moon Festival is coming. At UNIS, we celebrate Moon Festival on September, 28th. All the students are encouraged to wear “Áo dài” on that day. The students will have an opportunity to be immersed in Vietnamese culture through watching an exciting Moon Festival assembly, eating a delicious treat and making traditional Moon festival toys.

Here are some links that you can use to practise Vietnamese 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.
