Our aim in the Language Learning program is that pupils leave KAM school with a love of languages, people and cultures and with tools to communicate efficiently and meaningfully. We value the learning of additional languages and the development of mother tongue languages. Proficiency in additional languages aids the pupils in acquiring competencies in other curricular areas.

Our Philosophy

We believe that language learning:

  • is a unique lifelong process requiring specific skills, commitment, exposure and interaction.

  • promotes global citizenship and multicultural understanding.

  • occurs most successfully when students are grouped by proficiency levels

  • promotes an interdisciplinary view of the curriculum, and encourages student to view content from the perspective/view point of other cultures.

  • is most effective through daily exposure to instruction in the classroom and immersion in the target-language, culture and community.
