Broadway Elementary Mandarin Language Program

Broadway Elementary is implementing a new K-6 “Pilot Mandarin Immersion K to 6” program. In this program, students can receive Mandarin instruction through hands-on experience and real life application. The curriculum will start with listening and speaking at the early grade levels and develop into reading and writing. You can find out more about at their Yahoo Group and the schools website.

To reach out to the community and prospective parents about the school and their program, they will be showing the hour long “Speaking in Tongues” tonight starting at 7 PM in the school auditorium.

From Broadway Elementary:

Pilot Mandarin Immersion K to 6 at the public Broadway Elementary School in Venice, California. Please contact the school regarding Enrollment for kindergarten class, Fall 2010. Phone Number: 310-392-4944.

Currently, Broadway’s Mandarin Academy offers Mandarin instruction three classes a week in the FLES (Foreign Language Study in the Elementary School) model. Students receive Mandarin instruction through hands-on experience and real life application. The curriculum will start with listening and speaking at the early grade levels and develop into reading and writing. Our Mandarin teachers collaborate in instructional planning with classroom teachers in every grade level to ensure that the Mandarin instruction is relevant to grade level standards and curricular content in various subject areas.

In addition to the Mandarin language, our Mandarin Academy provides students exposure to the Chinese culture, including its music, art, dance, customs, food, and drama. This well-rounded instructional program fosters the appreciation for diversity in our students.

As China becomes an increasing influence in world affairs, Broadway’s Mandarin Academy prepares our students to be versatile and competitive in a global work force. Learning its language and culture, along with rigorous academic training, will help accomplish this goal.
