At ICS we are committed to encouraging and expanding students’ language skills and awareness; we believe that in a changing world being multi-lingual is a necessity.
We encourage students to maintain and develop their mother tongue as this is important for their cultural identity and cognitive development. We recognise that having mother tongue skills also helps students in learning additional languages.
English is our language of instruction.
German is the language of our host community and holds an important place in the ICS curriculum where it is studied by all students up to Grade 10. Students may also choose to study German up to Grade 12.
We also offer Secondary students a choice of Spanish and French. Grade 11 & 12 students may opt for Beginner's Italian (Italian ab initio). They may also study other languages as a Self-Taught Language. Please see the following pages for more information.
