MODERN LANGUAGES DEPARTMENT

Bienvenue! Willkommen! Karibu!
This department is comprised of: French, German & Swahili We use the CIE Syllabus for year 11 and Edexcel syllabus for years 12 and 13. The department organizes international trips to Europe. We also liaise with the Alliance Française and the Goethe Institut, who are the official supporters of the French and German respectively. We have a partnership with the German School Nairobi which ensures that our students interact with native German speakers so as to improve their speech. This partnership is for the Year 10 and 11 students and takes place twice a year. Each year, we organize an Inter-school Poetry Contest where students from different schools together with ours, compete by reciting poems across the three languages. The students also get to showcase what they have learnt in class during the annual Open Days we have. Our students have shown great skill in these events. The teachers are well experienced and devoted to ensuring that the students get the knowledge and skill required by the syllabus. The Text books we use are: Tricolore, Logo and Kiswahili Mufti for French, German and Swahili respectively. The students are given enough homework and projects in accordance to the school’s regulations. It is always a great joy to see students eager to learn a new language and with the needed effort, students perform excellently. A foreign language opens up doors and cuts through all cultural and speech barriers that one may face in any field of study. Be it for higher education in those countries, employment opportunities or for travel, one will always stand out from the rest which is what we want for our students.
