Mother Tongue Programme

CIS strongly promotes international mindedness on the part of everyone. The school encourages access to different cultures, perspectives and languages.The acquisition of more than one language enriches personal growth and helps facilitate international understanding for both the student and his/her peer. By continuing to have opportunities to engage in a mother tongue, learners are able to build on the language skills they have already established and it facilitates the learning of additional languages.
