WES Global Classroom 联合优势：共建玮希全球课堂
The purpose of WES Education is to “preach, impart knowledge and solve problems” (Han Yu, “Shi Shuo”). To preach how to be a man is the first, and then knowledge is imparted; As for solving problems, many problems can be solved only when students are equipped with the learning ability and skills. Either the teacher helps solve the puzzles, or the students themselves deliberate on and discuss the puzzles. Therefore, there will be three kinds of classes in SWA. The first class is based on small-class discussion, the second class on practice in student groups and social practice, and the third class on WES Global Class.
The third class, WES Global Class, will be a special class in our campus. Pate’s Grammar School will offer special online course to give students a closer look at the century-old school.
At the same time, Pate will provide teachers training for Shanghai WES academy, and work together to create a better teachers team , build a more excellent teaching system.
