English as an Additional Language
Xinhua Academy offers support for English learners in our kindergarten, primary, middle school, and high school programs. Xinhua Academy follows the Six Principles for Exemplary Teaching of English Learners in making our daily decisions. These are: 1) know your learners, 2) create conditions for language learning, 3) design high-quality language lessons, 4) adapt lesson delivery as needed, 5) monitor and assess language development, and 6) engage and collaborate within a community of practice.
We promote additive bilingualism which means students continue to build proficiency in their first language while adding new and meaningful experiences in the English Language.
To ensure that our students are continuously learning both Chinese and English, Xinhua’s international integration classrooms are co-taught by Chinese and foreign teachers. These partners work together in co-planning, co-teaching, and co-assessing students so no one is left behind and each student feels challenged and valued. By having two professional teachers in the classroom, we systematically follow Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) strategies. Through this model, students develop confidence as they communicate by building on their own background knowledge and strengths.
