French is an official language in 33 countries on 5 continents. French is one of the official languages of a dozen international organisations and is the second most commonly studied foreign language in the world.
Being an IB World school, we at TNS strive to develop an understanding and appreciation of foreign languages for the benefit of our students. Our philosophy consists of promoting respect for various cultures and this becomes evident in our French language classes. Not only do the students discover another language, but they also learn to appreciate and discover another culture. These first steps into language learning are the foundations to creating an international minded person who is willing to share, communicate and believe in their multilingual potential.
French is compulsory in all classes from Early Years to the Diploma Programme. All teachers above have undergone IB trainings (regional and/or online) as well as various other foreign language/teacher trainings overseas and/or endorsed by the Alliance Française de Lahore. The school library is fully stocked with multiple dictionaries and French books. Students have the opportunity to participate in various interschool competitions as well as be part of the annual TNS Francophonie week celebration which takes place every February.
