Mother LANGUAGE Programme
The Mother Language at ABA encourages all students who have English as a second or additional language to maintain their mother/native/first language and not to replace it with English. The school promotes internationalism and by facilitating mother language classes, the cultural identity of the students is preserved, the connection to the family and the home country is strengthened. Mother language is part of a students’ cultural heritage. As such, ABA supports a parent run tutored mother language program that runs as an extracurricular activity for students K2 to Grade 10.
