Celebrating Multilingualism at ISKL

Language is the first thing we exchange when we encounter it, and I feel intense gratification when I can help someone feel a bit more at home when I can communicate with them in their native language.

To start, we have curated a list of the top 10 frequently asked questions about multilingualism, paired with insightful guidance! Stay tuned as we unveil this resource, but first, let us delve deeper into the benefits of multilingual education. 

Diversity in ISKL

There are many benefits to fostering multilingualism at an international school such as ISKL. Students can sharpen problem-solving skills, enhance critical thinking, and engage with diverse cultures in an inclusive learning environment. Multilingualism helps build a more interconnected and understanding community, allowing students like Enya and Zhao Yang to celebrate a valuable part of their identity.

Whether a student’s connection to language is through their heritage or simply because they found a love for learning a new language, an international school such as ISKL presents them with pockets of possibilities to forge friendships and nurture a genuine appreciation for the profound role languages play in our lives.

The love for languages doesn’t just stop with our students. Our strong commitment to school-wide partnerships ensures that our entire community embarks on this beautiful linguistic journey together.

I've always had an extraordinary connection to the Spanish language, which I've loved since Prep Senior. Spanish has become a distinct part of my identity, and I love that!
