Most of the world’s children today are multilingual (60%). Multiple languages open a gateway for children to experience new cultures, thereby allowing them to better understand their own identity.
Gift School children experience two languages on a daily basis – French and English. Learning a second language is not a set objective in and of itself, but rather a tool which the children learn to use over time with more and more ease.
All maternelle classes have both a native French speaking teacher and a native English speaking assistant. Primary classes have class in French in mornings, and afternoon activities are in English with a native English speaking teacher.
The Gift School is proud to partner with the organization Be-Rise and Dr Franck Scola, author of “Understanding and Nurturing a Bilingual Childhood” and President of the Research Committee. Please follow our Facebook page to attend an upcoming webinar on the subject of Bilingual Childhood, with Dr Scola.
