English and Mandarin are the world’s most widely spoken languages and underpin the Epsom curriculum. In line with the future educational and career-based advantages that come with mastery of both languages, Epsom’s English Mandarin Immersion Programme (“EMIP”) offers instruction and full immersion in these languages. Equal-weighted, 50-50 delivery of the curriculum in both languages will ensure proficiency and fluency. EMIP is taught by bilingual and internationally accredited teaching staff and caters to both Mandarin and non-Mandarin speaking students.
The EMIP is designed so that all students can successfully master the Mandarin language regardless of whether Mandarin is spoken at home.
Who is it for?
EMIP will be available to prep school students between the ages of 3 and 6 (Early Years Foundation Stage 1 to Year 2).
