Bài một – Chúng ta là ai.

“Who we are” is the first unit we are currently exploring in Vietnamese class. Students are inquiring into how communicating in another language help us to be connected with a wider community. Through different activities in the class, they have learned how to use and respond to greetings appropriately. The students can introduce and describe themselves and others using more descriptive words. They also start to pay attention to the tone marks in order to have better pronunciation. At the end of the unit, students will have a purposeful conversation with some of the Vietnamese native speakers.

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

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.
