languages_for-geopointeThis morning we had the opportunity present our latest parent info session on the topic of language acquisition.  It was excited to see a strong turnout of families representing many different grades and nationalities.  We want say an extra special thank you to everyone who set aside the time to be with us this morning.

For individuals who were unable to attend, we have included a link to the presentation slides.  Additionally, we have also embedded a video in this post that was created by a fellow international school.  The video highlights the importance of supporting the continued development of the “mother tongue” for students who attend international schools where the primary language of instruction is not their first language.

As always, our goal at BFIS is to honor the unique qualities of every child and implement research-based instructional strategies to maximize every student’s potential.  We hope you will find this information helpful and we look forward to continuing to support your children in their language journey!
