Bali is one of the most popular international destinations known for its beautiful nature and
its culture. There are so many people from different countries come to Bali which allows
multi-cultural interactions between locals and tourists. Hence, it is a must to prepare human
resources to be able to communicate well in various languages in order to develop Bali to a
brighter future and to think globally without forgetting Bali’s culture.
CHIS School is a National Plus school that helps you to improve your skills in communicating
in different languages, especially Mandarin and English. To accomplish this goal,
CHIS students will be given minimally 6 hours each of English and Mandarin class per week,
guided and tutored by native teachers. Furthermore, CHIS School also
evolves local culture and Balinese language as additional local subject.
