We all know the benefits of being multilingual, but IFS takes it to the next level with a French curriculum and language programme for non-French speakers. Here’s what we learned…
Living in multicultural Singapore means living in a melting pot of languages – which means we know all about the benefits of being bilingual. But what about being multilingual? At International French School (Singapore), students have the best of all worlds – being part of a vibrant international community while learning the French language through its bilingual French-English curriculum. If a school with a long tradition of success and culture is what you and your family are looking for, head over to IFS’s Open House on 19 June or explore IFS in the comfort of your own home through a virtual tour. Here’s what else we learned about the school:
Raising little francophones
Did you know nearly 300 million people around the world speak French? At IFS, non-native French-speaking kids (up to 11 years old) will get the unique opportunity to learn French through a full immersion experience. And by learning this culturally rich and creative language, students will be able to become true citizens of the world.
What if we don’t speak French at home?
IFS is open to all nationalities, including families who aren’t native French speakers. Families of all backgrounds are welcome – in fact, at IFS, there are students from more than 67 nationalities currently attending the school! Worried your child needs extra help? IFS has several programs in place to introduce and support teaching and learning in French. And yes, there’s help for English and other native languages, too!
Reap the benefits of the prestigious French curriculum
If there’s anything we know about the French education system, it’s that it is one of the best in the world. Their practices have been tried and tested since 1798, resulting in a system with high academic standards and a structured approach to learning. Students are also taught to question, investigate and reflect always in reference to real-world contexts, adding balance and creativity to IFS’s structured program. Pretty useful stuff in today’s modern world, we think!
But don’t just take it from us – learn for yourselves what the school has to offer at the school’s Open House on 19 June or take a virtual campus tour.
