Host country/foreign languages

Excelling in Language Teaching in International Schools

Teaching and learning of languages is of high priority in international schools. Many countries require that all schools, including international schools, provide tuition in the host country language to all students. Most schools also offer one or more foreign languages as a requirement or an option for all students.

Challenges of Host Country Language Teaching

These challenges can be met by providing a high-quality, tailor-made programme for each language, and ensuring the teachers have a solid formation in successful language teaching methodologies.

CEC has targeted professional development for both host country and foreign language teachers in international schools. It is based on current research and practice from the field of language teacher development and helps teachers develop high-quality curricula, using modern language teaching methodology and pedagogy.
