At NAIS Manila, learning a language is a vital part of our students’ education. As well as contributing to your child's sense of mutual understanding, global citizenship, and personal fulfilment, language learning is proven to enhance cognitive development.

Our language programmes

The ability to understand and communicate in another language is a lifelong skill that enhances our students' education, employment, and recreational experiences.

We encourage our students to learn about different countries, cultures, communities, and people, too. By making comparisons, they gain an insight into their own culture and society.

The study of languages at NAIS Manila includes: 


Mandarin lessons

We recognise that an understanding of Asian culture and a command of Mandarin will be invaluable assets for the future.

Daily Mandarin lessons are complemented by a rich programme of activities, educational trips, and whole school events that take place throughout the year.

We also run an Advanced Chinese Programme, which gives students who qualify the opportunity to pursue Mandarin to a higher level.
