Immersion Programmes for Teachers of Chinese

Teachers can engage more deeply with the language and culture of the languages they teach through the immersion programmes available as a component of the curriculum support pathway. These are unique professional development opportunities, with great and lasting effects upon teacher capability, student achievement and the success of Learning Languages in New Zealand schools.
