Language of Learning and Teaching

  • Grade R Reception Year:   

A literacy rich bilingual class where English and Afrikaans are used.


Grades 1 and 2:

A language rich environment providing language literacy (formal teaching of reading and writing) and numeracy which are taught in the child's home language while the rest of the curriculum will remain bilingual.


Motivation /Motivering:


  • It is an educationally sound practice to establish the foundation of literacy and numeracy in a child's home language while immersing them in a second language.  Children learn a second language the same way that they learn their first language before the age of twelve.
