Dutch Language and Culture in primary education – partially integrated

Dutch-language students at the International School of Western Australia (ISWA) have the option of taking Dutch as a subject that is partially integrated into the teaching schedule at ISWA. The curriculum of LanguageOne Perth for students in primary education focuses on the language domains of reading, writing, spoken language skills and language usage. Our classes are richly varied in content and are taught by qualified teachers with experience in Dutch and/or international education. By involving the issues of our time and the international environment in which your children are growing up, we encourage the children to tap into their own linguistic knowledge in order to develop their Dutch-language skills. We use various methods to enhance motivation and the pleasure the children take in learning.

In practice: Unit Who we are

Our students learn about the differences between people, where everyone is from and what they as human beings represent. In groups 3/4 the students create riddles and send these to their family by post. Students in groups 5/6 make a school paper in which they share the knowledge they have acquired about the human body. The students of groups 7/8 prepare a presentation about their own personality and try to find out more about each other through interviews.
