In this podcast, Tracy Burton interviews Barbara Seaward – Head of Department Senior Schooling / Languages at Kawana Waters State College and District Panel Chair for Chinese on the Sunshine Coast. Here at CCPS, our International learning programs with Scotland, Canada, Japan, Mainland China, Macau, Hong Kong, and recently Vietnam and India/Nepal, have all contributed to our student’s understanding of their place in the world. Each country’s cultures, histories and individual children help the CCPS community engage with the world – to explore, to learn, and to create. Our Chinese international program embraces the global village we live in. So what are the challenges our international students face in an Australian school? What do teachers need to be aware of in terms of learning styles and language challenges? And what are the benefits of International immersion for our domestic students?
