School Programs

From early 2010, the Institute has supported the promotion of Chinese language and culture in primary and secondary schools, in particular in regional Victoria. The school cultural incursion programs have been the most popular and well received by Victorian schools. The Institute has also been working closely with the Chinese Language Teachers Association of Victoria (CLTAV), supporting key programs such as the Victorian Chinese Teachers’ Annual Conference, professional development workshops for Chinese teachers, and language competitions. 

 

In 2021, the Institute designs and launches the Chinese Language Immersion Program. This program has been tailored to simulate a study tour to China which due to the current pandemic, isn’t possible. Students of all proficiency levels will have the chance to engage in a ray of activities all conducted in Mandarin. It can be offered in a half day or full day mode, and can also be offered as an overnight camp, depending on the needs of the student cohort.  For further information, please contact Ms Luna Tai at luna.tai@unimelb.edu.au.
