中國語言及文化課程由幼兒園延展至畢業班，學生能夠逐步擁有良好的中文應用能力。 福州西湖國際學校的中文課程分為兩部分：中文作為母語和非母語的課程。我們根據學生自身的語言背景和特殊需求，將他們分成不同的班級，在每天的中文課上幫助學生提高他們的中文水平。此外，學生定期參加文化活動和文化研究課程，更深入地了解中國文化。課程非常強調今日中國和中國文化承傳兩方面，其設計側重學生參與，集中于實際經驗。西湖國際學校不僅在不同年級設置系統的、循序漸進的中國研習課程， 還舉行實地文化考察、中國文化工作坊，以及傳統節日慶祝活動。
Language is a tool of communication, and a vehicle of culture. Learning Chinese language and culture in FLIS helps to open doors for our students to learn about the Eastern world, fusing cross cultural thinking and open-mindedness.
The Chinese Language and Culture Program runs from Kindergarten all the way through to graduation and help students attain a strong command of the Chinese language. Our Chinese courses are divided into two sections: Chinese as a First Language and Chinese as a Foreign Language. Students are grouped into different classes according to their language background and their particular needs, helping them to develop their abilities in Mandarin Chinese to a greater extent during their daily language lessons. Furthermore, students deepen their connection with Chinese culture while participating in regular cultural activities and culture studies courses. FLIS not only provides Chinese language studies at various levels, but also organizes cultural field trips, Chinese culture workshops, and traditional festival celebrations and events for the students. The program has a strong focus both on today's China and China's cultural heritage and emphasizes student participation and hands-on experiences.
