Students learning bilingually

Janet Beck

Richmond West Primary School in Melbourne operates bilingual programs in English/Mandarin Chinese and English/Vietnamese.

An evaluation of the program earlier this year has shown how bilingual learning can enhance outcomes for students of all social and economic backgrounds, including those students identified as disadvantaged.
