CIS’ teaching
approach

All learning is done through inquiry. Wherever possible, CIS uses
authentic materials (such as songs, stories, TV and websites) instead of
textbooks, and engage students in active, hands-on activities like acting out
plays, cooking and participating in quizzes. The school places a strong
emphasis on creating authentic experiences where learning mirrors real-life
activities. CIS don’t do any translating. All learning is done through
immersion.

Who can enrol?

While language requirements do apply, CIS welcomes students from all
backgrounds. Some students are French native-speakers while others have been
educated in a French-speaking school or have a strong connection and passion
for the French language.
