Native languages on offer at ISB

ISB offers Native Language classes during the school day in Thai in Elementary School and in French, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, and Spanish in the secondary divisions (Middle School/High School). To learn more, please see the Elementary School Special Subject Areas page, the Middle School Program of Studies (pp. 31-33), and High School Academic Courses.

The languages currently offered after school are:
