ISWA recognises the acquisition of another language is an important part of developing a deeper understanding of the world.
Languages are a core element of our international community and LOTE study is compulsory in all IB programmes from Kindergarten – Year 12.
In-class Language Learning
ISWA offers French and Spanish language classes in our academic curriculum.
In most year levels, ISWA schedules the same amount of time for language learning as the other core subjects (up to 2 hours/week in Primary and 4 hours/week Secondary).
Our school offers immersion-style classes to ensure students will succeed. Best of all, the breadth of nationalities at our school means that students often have a native speaker to practise their new language skills.
Co-curricular Language Learning
ISWA has partnered with highly respected community providers of language tuition to provides greater language learning options. Classes are open to our student and parent community, as well as the wider Perth community. Courses are for both children and adults and a range of levels are offered, from beginners to advanced.
Our current co-curricular language classes offering includes:
