Goals of the French Program
As the American International School of Lomé is an English speaking school /environment and all classes are taught in English, French is taught as a second language. However, many of our students are francophone and we have taken this into account in designing our French program.
This year (2014-2015) we have three levels for our high school students. Students are divided into these levels by grade and by level in French. Our hope is that students who have been at AISL for many years will graduate close to bilingual in French and English.
For those who enter AISL in high school from French speaking environments, the focus will be on keeping up and or improving the written and grammatical aspect of the language since speaking fluency is often already achieved.
