Immersive Bilingualism

This academic year see the launch of the FIS Immersive Bilingualism project which focusses on speaking as part of language learning.

This multicultural project draws its strength from interaction between students from both streams while allowing them to continue with their own curriculum.

On a day to day basis, students will progress in a bilingual environment, working together on teaching projects in French and English while sharing the common space assigned for their classes.
