Good English, fully equipped with knowledge, skills and understanding of the world to be ready to integrate – that is the goal that Greenfield sets when launching the Global Citizen Bilingual pathway in the school year 2020 – 2021.
Global Citizens – the trend of the future world
If we look back at the world of yesterday, we will realize how fast the world today is changing. In the flow of time, every nation or nation is gradually merging into one, creating a “flat world” where each individual is an important link in the development of mankind.
And “Global Citizen” (Global Citizen), the concept of individuals who are able to adapt to all environments, live and work in different countries, cross boundaries of space, culture and language – has become a new trend of the future.
To catch up with the world, the formation of the generation of “global citizens” plays a crucial role. In reality, however, becoming a “global citizen” is not easy.
“Global citizens” are not only proficient in foreign languages, able to use technology, but also must be equipped with the most up-to-date knowledge and skills. Besides, “global citizens” must be aware of the environment, surrounding community and grasp the world situation.
Therefore, the passport of honor “global citizen” not only requires the effort on the whole journey of personal fulfillment of each individual but throughout that journey, the way of education of the school also has an enormous impact on a child’s future.
If the educational measure in the past focused on knowledge and scores, nowadays, according to the flow of the times, education should get rid of that trail thinking. Students need to be equipped with overall knowledge, skills, thinking capacity, leadership ability and want to contribute to help society to prepare luggage to enter the world.
