Green Shoots offers French and Vietnamese as First and Foreign Language options in primary and secondary. After consultation with the school, families choose the language pathway for their child, and students are placed in the appropriate class that matches their ability and will stimulate their potential.
Green Shoots offers a range of differently levelled French classes, with exact details changing year to year depending on student demand. These range from beginner to Mother Tongue level and have been recognised and approved by the French consular authorities in Vietnam.
The programme covers four areas of language learning:
Families whose child’s mother tongue is French and who wish to join additional French lessons beyond those scheduled for all other language learners may enrol their child in our French Mother Tongue programme, after which students may choose to take French 1st Language at IGCSE level.
The Green Shoots Vietnamese programme is designed primarily to meet the needs of non-native speakers who wish to develop their Vietnamese language skills while living in the country. We also offer a first language programme for native speakers when there is sufficient demand for this programme.
Children wishing to study their home language or a second/foreign language of their choice can make a request to the school to do so. Self-guided language learning may take place on an individual or group basis, with teaching offered by language teachers, tutors, or an online service provider. Self-taught languages are taught during the students’ scheduled foreign language instruction time or after school. While not employed by the school, all outside instructors who are on campus are required to meet the school’s safeguarding standards.
Since its launch, Green Shoots students have used this self-guided study programme to graduate with a Cambridge certificate in Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Spanish, Italian and German.
