“Our students participate in an international exchange programme which we established several years ago with a school in Paris.”
Nowadays, speaking only one foreign language is not enough. A student who speaks more than two languages has more opportunities in the job market, in their own country as well as on an international scale. French is, along with English, the only language spoken on the five continents. It is also a working language and the official language for the UN, the European Union, UNESCO, and NATO, the International Olympic Comitee, the International Red Cross and various other international legal bodies. This language is highly relevant because it is also the official language of Strasbourg, Brussels and Luxembourg, which are the headquarters of three European institutions.
At Brains School, French is studied from Year 7 to Year 13. During these 7 years our students obtain an advanced level of French, enabling them to take official exams such as DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française), granted by the French Ministry of Education through the Alliançe Française. As well as this, so as to attain a command of the language and knowledge of the French culture, our students participate in our international exchange programme. We have carried out this programme for several years with a Parisian school, based on a linguistic immersion with a French-speaking family.
The command of French opens the doors to French and foreign companies (all of those which are French-speaking: Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and the African continent). 68 Governments and States are francophone. French is the most studied foreign language after English and it is amongst the ten most spoken languages in the world due to its 200 million speakers on the five continents.
