These schools are quintessential for those who wish to broaden their vocabulary, reading and writing skills in a second or third language, such as French, German, Polish, or Mandarin, so that by the time they graduate they are fluent, or nearly fluent, in that language.

Benefits of your child attending a day language school

Aside from research that suggests not only do students focus more and excel academically by learning a second language, it can assist children with their native language as well.

Becoming fluent in another language also gives kids a prime opportunity to learn about other cultures and increase their global awareness, along with providing a range of additional job opportunities that they might not have access to otherwise.

Types of day language schools available

Accompanying a bilingual program or a multilingual one, many day language schools also offer a number of additional services such as community service, exchange programs, tutoring, IB or AP programs, and career planning or university counseling for higher grades.

Schools can also specialize in a certain area like arts or sports, or cover a broad range of courses and programs, clubs and activities, moral development and special needs.

Costs of day language schools

Private day language schools generally cost anywhere from $9,000 or $10,000 to upwards of $18,000 or $20,000 depending on the school. However, there are a number of ways to pay for fees, including financial aid, scholarships, sibling discounts and bursaries.

Choosing a language school for your child

Wondering if the language school you’re looking into is the right fit for your child? Susan Markle, Director of Admissions at Toronto French School, advises looking to your child’s strengths and weaknesses. They may have a natural ear for the language or they may struggle a little more than others to pick it up.  Doing as much research as possible about the school and its programs as well as visiting the school and meeting with staff or current students is a great way to determine if you think your child will flourish there.
