Our vision for World Languages at Nord Anglia School Dubai is to continue to promote linguistic and cultural literacy while cultivating a life-long appreciation and enthusiasm for foreign language acquisition and the cultures they reflect.

We believe that by learning a new language, students can build a global mind-set; fundamental in the 21st century. The study of world languages is an interdisciplinary pursuit and it intrinsically helps students view issues from a global perspective. Our students gain an increased knowledge of their relationship to the world by developing an appreciation for other viewpoints all the while deepening their understanding of their own culture and the world at large.

With a breadth of curriculum spanning from Early Years to IB, it is an exciting time to pioneer innovative and exciting projects which can allow us to tailor a language programme for personalised pathways. Welcome to NAS World Languages!
