Colac Primary school
Going Global with Meg: Our Mandarin Program
Using video conference technology, our students connect to a China-based language instructor who is broadcast into the classroom at the same times each week for live and interactive lessons.
The program is also supported by our classroom teachers who get to develop their own Mandarin skills while the students get the excitement of speaking Chinese to a native speaker, live from China.
The use of live video-conferencing technology also means our students are able to see the streets of China in real time and have important context around why they are learning the language.
The Meg program is designed to inspire our students and staff to become contributing global citizens.
