Language Policy

As an IB world school we aim for our students to be effective communicators and to be able to express themselves confidently in more than one language. We value the diversity of languages within the multilingual profile of our school community.


At TIS we recognise the importance of a strong foundation in a child’s home and family languages (Mother Tongue)  and that this directly relates to strong language acquisition in other languages. Language  learning  is  transdisciplinary  and  so  all  teachers  at  TIS  are teachers  of  language.  We believe that multilingualism is a means of affirming cultural identity and developing international-mindedness  in  our  students  and  the  learning  community. We support a multilingual  approach that recognises the importance of mother tongues in supporting additional learning.


Language learning includes learning language, learning about language and learning through language. At TIS we believe that language learning and acquisition is a  constructive, developmental process, where students develop by  building on their prior skills and knowledge.
