Why a bilingual education?
Command the English language
Bilingual, international, global. The benefits of a bilingual school are many.
We are proudly bilingual. While our focus is on Swedish and English, a blend of many languages and cultures becomes a way of life for our students, who learn in a truly international atmosphere and meet the world at school every day. They have classmates and teachers who represent many cultures. This promotes global understanding, so that your child will also learn to understand different cultural perspectives, from "lagom" to the "American dream", and everything in between.
From one to two languages
When your child first steps into our school, he or she might only speak one language.
We kick-start the education of the youngest children by making sure to get their English up-to-speed as quickly as possible. After a few short months they will feel confident in English and Swedish. We speak English at school and use both Swedish and English teaching materials.
Swedish is vital to your child in terms of being a part of this culture, integrating into Swedish society and enjoying everything that this country has to offer. English, on the other hand, is the key language of the world. To speak English with fluency and confidence is vital to success both in and out of Sweden.
Up to half of the education at Internationella Engelska Skolan is delivered through the English language, by qualified teachers from English-speaking countries including Canada, the USA, and the UK. This language immersion helps our students to become truly bilingual, commanding both languages fully.
