Home Language

Maintenance of home language is an important part of the IB curriculum as well as integral to ISHR’s language philosophy. Working with your child’s teacher, we can provide home language support during the school day or after school through our home language or LAP program.

“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart”

– Nelson Mandela

Home language maintenance and development is not only an important part of the IB curriculum, but also is an integral component of ISHR’s language philosophy. Research has shown that students who maintain and develop their home language:

  • overtake their monolingual peers in terms of cognitive development and academic results.
  • become more proficient at the language of instruction.
  • can expect higher salaries once they enter the workforce.
  • acquire additional languages more easily.

Our home language programme offers support in different languages, such as Arabic, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, etc.

Please contact our Home Language Coordinator by email if you would like to find out more.
