Celebrating Bilingualism

We believe that bilingualism is more than just a dual-language instruction of students, and therefore we always are looking for new ways to use bilingualism to the best benefit of our students. All our students are fluent in both Vietnamese and English on graduation, and many of them graduate with outstanding results and go on to study to the best universities in the world. We believe that bilingualism is one of the factors that make our students succeed in their studies and also in their social lives.

Recent research confirms that studying in a bilingual environment not only improves children’s’ memory, multitasking skills, alertness, observations skills, decision-making skills, and communications skills, but also helps boosting their self-image and confidence. There is clear evidence that cumulatively this leads to improved academic performance, and better work and study prospects longer-term. Therefore we encourage our students to trans-language, and aim to create a truly bilingual learning environment for them.
