Thanks to technology and globalisation the world is getting smaller. Learning a second language is a critical tool to navigate this new world and help your child become a global citizen. Multilingualism boosts cultural appreciation and makes communication easier in life, education and work. Stamford American International School’s World Language Program can equip your child with the skills they need to thrive anywhere in the world.
Bilingual Mandarin or SpanishStamford American is the only international school in Singapore to offer a bilingual Spanish or Mandarin program from 2 to 11 years old. To achieve the greatest possible proficiency and confidence in both writing and spoken word students enjoy equal daily exposure to both languages across the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program. Mandarin is assessed by the external Youth Chinese Test (YCT), the Chinese Government’s standard test for non-native Chinese learners, and Spanish students are assessed using STAMP – Standards-Based Measurement of Proficiency.
8 Mother Tongue LanguagesStamford American’s Mother Tongue program instills proficiency and familiarization with the student’s home language. The 8 different languages represent a high proportion of Stamford American’s international student body with teaching aligned to the International Baccalaureate Mother Tongue curriculum. Mother Tongue languages in Dutch, Danish, French, Finnish, Korean, Spanish, Portuguese and Swedish are provided on campus after school hours as part of an extensive choice of co-curricular activities. This ensures regular lessons without disruption to the regular school day and no requirement to travel to outside tutors.
Accelerated English ProgramA dedicated stream benefits students with their own homeroom teacher and expert English as a Foreign Language teachers within a small class size. Following the mainstream International Baccalaureate curriculum, with additional English language lessons, the program enables easy reintegration into a mainstream class once English language skills are sufficiently developed.
