5 Regent’s students take part in Chinese Knowledge competition 2018

On the 31st January 2018, Cookie, Yong Li, Daniel, Tong Tong and Yurika from Regent’s International School, Bangkok went to Assumption University to participate in the China National Knowledge Competition. The competition tested the students’ knowledge of Chinese geography, history, literature, culture and general knowledge.

Over a hundred students took part from schools across Thailand. Four of our students scored 92/100 or higher in the first round and made it through to the semi-finals of only 20 students. Daniel qualified for the final top eight and received an Honourable Mention award.

Congratulations to all the students who participated in the competition.

IB School Supported Self-Taught class 2017

The end of this academic year at Regent’s is going to be unique: our first ever IB School Supported Self-Taught class are beginning to prepare for their final examinations. This is a very special subject that requires a tremendous amount of skill and dedication from the students who undertake it.

SSST students are guided by a teacher in school using the English language, however, the students have to study literary texts and write assessments in their own language. The IB offer this subject to students in over 80 different mother tongue languages.

If you would like to study your language as well as English, or even make your mother tongue language a priority at IB, then this class is for you!

Our Japanese students, Shin and Renaka in Y13, are so happy to be studying in their mother tongue language. Here they are smiling after making such a success of their Oral Assessment.

Have a look at the Regent’s IB Subject Guide for more information.

Chinese Speaking Competition

In March, Secondary had a Chinese speaking competition for Chinese students as well as for students who do not speak Chinese as their first language. The competition was split into Junior and Senior groups, where the Junior division spoke on the topic “My Birthday Wish”, while the Senior division spoke about “How to protect the environment”. The students who participated in this competition displayed outstanding fluency in the language and commendable bravery for standing up to an audience while speaking a language that they are not used to.
