Language Immersion in English

We don’t teach English; we teach in English

At Avenues, learning a second language is more than an academic pursuit; it is a daily practice that transforms the way students see and think about the world. From nursery to 5th grade, students spend 50% of their time learning in English and 50% learning in a second language: one day in English, one day in Mandarin, and so on. This way, students learn languages as tools of daily communication that will be useful for the rest of their lives.

The Fundamentals

An emphasis on social-emotional development and problem-solving skills underpin Avenues’ early childhood curriculum. Children learn on their own, with individualized instruction, as well as in small groups, developing all-important collaboration skills. The curriculum consists of the following:

  • Development of both fine and gross motor skills
  • Individualized focus on language, literacy and writing skills
  • Estimation and early math readiness and problem solving
  • A scientific view of the world: simple experiments
  • The beginning of the World Course that will spiral through all years of the Avenues curriculum
  • Introduction of English through 50/50 immersion
