Dutch Language and Culture in secondary education – after-school

LanguageOne Hong Kong’s curriculum for Dutch-language students in secondary education enables admission to Dutch, Flemish and international education and preparation for Dutch exams. Our classes are richly varied in content and are taught by qualified teachers with experience in the Dutch education system and/or Dutch-language teaching abroad.

LanguageOne has developed a new Dutch educational programme that follows the curricular requirements of the International Baccalaureate® (IB), which meets the core objectives of the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and the Reference Levels for Language. Our approach mainly emphasises learning to use the Dutch language. Your children will carry out meaningful language and culture-related tasks in a way that resonates and connects with their world and that will facilitate possible repatriation to the Netherlands or Flanders.

Our students take 2 hours of themed after-school classes per week at the French International School, which are distributed across so-called units. They also do a homework assignment of at least one hour. A unit is a set of lessons about a specific theme that will be treated over the course of a number of weeks. The units cover various skills such as reading, writing, speaking and listening, centred around a (cultural) theme. Each unit is rounded off with an assessment.

In practice: Unit Living abroad

Our students work on their literary skills. They explore the question of whether living abroad influences their personal development. The students read the book Heimwee naar hagelslag and write an assignment about it. They also research the history of Dutch emigration and do an assignment that involves writing an informal letter and making a poster.
