The development of multilingualism in the French, English, and Vietnamese languages is the primary goal of our bilingual section’s educational initiative:
1. Alternating time slots in French, English, and Vietnamese
Our students, across all sections, switch daily between learning French with a French-speaking teacher, English with an English-speaking teacher and Vietnamese with a Vietnamese teacher.
2. One Instructor, one language
Each child has two teachers who work in Pairs, a French-speaking teacher and a native English-speaking teacher. This helps the child associates a language distinct to each adult around him. Thus, the acquisition of languages is done in tandem and without confusion. Each week, a third Vietnamese teacher participates in the class.
3. Themes are addressed in parallel in the three languages
Each month, the same theme (broken down into weekly sub-themes) is covered in French, English and Vietnamese for each of the four divisions. As a result, the child’s vocabulary in all three languages can grow and he can gradually learn about many parts of the world around him.
We are pleased to provide you with more information and to give you a tour of our school.
