Parent workshops and resources

Every school year, ISB faculty give informative and practical workshops for parents on how to help their children become functionally multilingual here at ISB. To inquire about native language support for your children, in any of these languages or a language not yet listed, please email nativelanguage@isb.ac.th.

Native Language fees are calculated at 500 THB per 60-minute session or 650 THB per 80-minute session, payable at the beginning of each semester in the Community and Arts Office, next to the Booster Hut.
