Exchange Program with International Schools

Postby mhsu » Mon, 03 Dec 2018 11:07 pm

I'm a high school student in the U.S. who is right now pitching an international travel program in Singapore for high school students. The ones attending this trip would also like to practice their language abilities in Mandarin. Are there any private co-ed schools that has a strong bilingual program but leans more on the Mandarin side? In addition, since this is an exchange program, we would like this to be a boarding school that is also interested in becoming a sister school (sibling school). Please leave me some recommendations!

You should reach out direct to the MOE (minstry of education) in Singapore. The local schools have far stronger mandarin programs and are genuinely bilingual whereas in the International Schools get about as a far as Ni hao chee bai!
