CMI – Chinese as Medium of Instruction | EMI – English as Medium of Instruction
At IBET, we prepare each child to cope with the educational demands of a Chinese as Medium of Instruction (CMI) school which is the school of choice for the majority of underprivileged ethnic minority children. As most of the subjects are taught in Chinese it is imperative that the child has high level of proficiency in Chinese language reading, speaking and writing.
Due to a lack of financial resources, ethnic minority parents are typically unable to afford language support. At IBET, we provide high-quality language support at a subsidized fee. Once they have mastered Chinese then clarity in other subjects will naturally follow. As such, the primary years program helps students excel in other subjects beyond Chinese, influencing their performance, grades and encouraging them to move on to tackle higher studies.
