Native Speakers

We offer a comprehensive programme for native speakers of a range of languages. For some languages we provide classes within lesson time, and for others we provide sessions before and after school, and at lunchtimes.

Dutch and Belgian students study Dutch as part of our Shanghai Dutch School programme.  This covers language, geography and history, as part of a formal programme approved by the Dutch Education Ministry.


We offer Korean lessons with the main teaching programme for native speakers from year 9 (age 14) upwards.  These classes help to maintain and develop a high standard of spoken and written language.  Students study for IGCSE examinations at age 16 and then progress to taking Korean as a native language in the International Diploma Programme, finishing with a bilingual IB Diploma.
