Mother Tongue Programme

Maintenance of mother tongue is encouraged and supported at ISH. We recognise that continuing to develop the students’ mother tongue and literacy skills in their home language support the development of their English language skills. At ISH, we facilitate mother tongue programmes after school by providing classroom space and arranging for teachers to deliver instruction and helping to set up each of the programmes.

Classes will have a minimum of 5 students and the cost of the classes will be 1600 kr for term 1: Sept-Dec 2017 and 1600 kr for term 2: Jan – May 2018. If you are interested in enrolling your child, please fill in the online form below. You will be contacted in case the class reaches the minimum number of students required.
