Research has shown that exposure to different languages is beneficial for children’s development. They become more aware of different cultures, other people and other points of view. Bringing very young children into contact with foreign languages may result in faster language learning as well as improved mother tongue skills
We at Dehradun Hills Academy currently offer the students an opportunity to choose from any one of the following as their Third Language as part of the curriculum:
– French – Spanish
French or Spanish as a foreign language are offered from Grade 2 onwards. The levels of the contents are from introductory level to intermediate level. Students are encouraged to improve overall language skills such as reading, writing, speaking and listening. By participating fully through a wide variety of activities, students will develop communication skills in French-Spanish more efficiently. The right levels of textbooks are used for each grade level.
Note: Foreign Languages are introduced to the students once they are thorough with their English and Hindi.
