Unique Features

Each school does it differently. At schools like ours that are bilingual, the aim is to have students fully functional and at a high degree of competence in their non-native language in the four language domains: reading, writing, speaking and listening. Students are immersed in an environment dominated by the second language so that it is reinforced and solidified. At our school, math, science, history, and geography are taught in French, and French-language courses are mandatory up until the final year. Usually, the expectation at language schools is that the non-native language will be near or at native fluency level by graduation.

Benefits

Learning another language tends to enrich and enhance intellectual development, produce greater flexibility in thinking and even strengthen abilities in the native language. It has a positive effect on executive brain functions—staying focused, planning ahead and dealing with ambiguity. It opens doors to other cultures and viewpoints and, in our globalized world, increases job opportunities.

How do I know it's a good fit?

It depends on your child and what their strengths and areas of difficulty are. Some kids have a good ear and a greater propensity for picking up languages. Others can pick it up and do fine, but may have to work a little harder. If a child has difficulty making some sounds or is developmentally delayed in language acquisition, then a bilingual program might not be right for them.
