Languages at UWCSEA

Staff Learning 19

The College values and celebrates linguistic diversity. Our community is drawn from around 90 countries, and more than 80 languages are spoken by community members as their first language.

Our language offerings are designed to provide our students with exposure to other cultures as well as to acquire skill in a language other than English. We support students whose first language is not English in retaining and developing skills in their home language (mother tongue) wherever possible. 

In addition to English (or English as an Additional Language) lessons, almost all students take a Language other than English (LOTE) class as part of the academic timetable. The languages offered depend on the grade and campus. 

We admit EAL learners from K1 to Grade 11 on both campuses, although the programme differs slightly by campus.  

In addition to the languages offered via the academic timetable, through our Activities programme we also offer a comprehensive Home Languages Programme for students who wish to maintain a level of academic exposure to a mother tongue (home) language which they do not study during the school day.
