With 17 Chinese teachers from across the family in attendance, the inaugural Shrewsbury International Asia Chinese Learning Conference took place earlier this month. Centring upon shared experiences during a year of significant disruption, content acted in support of a wide ranging commitment to cross-campus collaboration.
“It was a real pleasure to be able to bring colleagues from across the region together in this way,” shared Ms Haze Kwok, Head of Chinese at Shrewsbury International School Hong Kong. “We have a strong support network that shares great ambition for the development of Chinese language fluency among Shrewsbury students.”
Sessions were led by regional teams and provided insight upon questioning and retrieval, the native voice, qualification pathways and second language learning. Scenario based discussions prompted deeper discussion on student placement, differentiation and thematic learning.
“I thoroughly enjoyed engaging with my fellow Chinese teachers and learning more about the approaches we have taken to ensuring fluency among students.”

“Our first SIACLC was hugely productive - teachers from all three campuses shared many great ideas and I believe that the event will serve as a source of inspiration and continued reference as we move forward together.”
