"If you talk to someone in a language they understand it goes to their head. If you talk to them in their own language, it goes to their heart." - Nelson Mandela
WELCOME TO THE IICS LANGUAGE ACQUISITION DEPARTMENTAL WEBSITE!
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. On this site, you can find information about IICS' Language Acquisition offerings, our Language Acquisition teachers, links to our department's curriculum outlines, our departmental policies, language learning research/studies and useful learning resources for our students to use to complement the work they are doing in the classroom.
The courses outlined on this website and taught by our department are aimed at non-native level speakers of English, Spanish, German and French. IICS does offer a Mother Tongue program (currently only in Grade 9) as well as self-study options in the Diploma Program (Grades 11 & 12) for students needing to be challenged at a native-level.
To navigate your way around the site, please use the menu options at the top of the page. The 'Department' page includes all department-wide information and policies and for information specific to the different languages we offer, such as course outlines and learning resources, can be found by clicking on the relevant language at the top of this page.
Thank you once more for taking the time to visit our page - we hope that you find what you are looking for and potentially more!
