Last Friday we had the opportunity to present our latest parent info session on the topic of language acquisition. We would like to thank all the families who were able to attend and we hope this presentation helped you to understand how we acquire a foreign language. For individuals who were unable to attend, we have included a link to the presentation slides. Feel free to use the links, books and resources you will find at the end of the presentation as a reference. 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!
