Language Learning Center
SMIC Language Learning Center (LLC) offers global language programs to both English and Chinese track students. The language programs include Chinese [both heritage Chinese (yuwen) and Chinese as a second language (CSL)], English as a second language (ESL), French and Spanish. The ultimate goal of the Chinese and English (as a language) courses from grade 1 to grade 12 is to ensure that the students graduating from the school in either English or Chinese track will be fluently equipped with dual language communication skills in speaking and writing for college, the workplace and beyond. After 9th grade, English Track students who demonstrate Chinese/English fluency may take on the challenge of learning a third language of French or Spanish to further develop their language talent to access with greater depth the global, multi-cultural community.
