Beijing Huijia Private School 北京私立汇佳学校


Language is fundamental to learning, thinking and communicating, and the power of language is best experienced through quality literature. MYP not only emphasizes developing the language skills, such as, listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing and presenting, but also stresses that students need to develop these skills through the study of both language and literature.

In Beijing Huijia Middle School, the majority of students choose Chinese as their language and literature, with only a few non-Chinese native speakers choosing their mother tongue as their language and literature.
