The foreign language programme at St. Andrews International School, Sukhumvit 107 provides instruction in Mandarin, French or Thai. We believe that to truly grasp a language it is important to have regular reinforcement at differentiated levels.
From Year 3 to Year 6, French and Mandarin are taught for an hour each week by our own language teachers. Thai is mandatory for all Thai students and is taught by our dedicated Thai teacher. In the Secondary school, language lessons become more frequent at two to four lessons per week.
Throughout the year, key holidays and festivals are celebrated as an integral part of the programme with language students learning the cultural background and sharing their learning by presenting at school assemblies and other school events. Additionally, as teachers are native speakers, they can speak personally about relevant cultural events and aid the development of student understanding
