Linguistic immersion, which is at the heart of the mission of Vision School establishments, is an educative approach where students spend the majority of their school day in a language other than their mother tongue.
At Vision School, English is the immersion language and is taught as a mother tongue. Arabic, which is our students’ maternal language, will also be taught as a mother tongue. French, the third language learned at Vision School, is taught as a second language.
The preschool program advocated by Vision School is inspired by the pedagogical approach used in Canadian preschools. At the elementary and secondary grades, the Moroccan educational program will be respected but enhanced through dynamic language learning.
The program used and the time allocated to learning the Arabic language and the Arabic culture are the same as all other schools in Morocco. It is paramount for Vision School that the learning of other language skills in no way affects the development of Arabic competencies.
Since time spent in the classroom, which represents 30 hours per week, will be predominantly in English, students will generally communicate in this language while at school. This represents as many as 25 hours per week in preschool and more than 15 hours per week in elementary and secondary grades. As for French, which is a familiar language for the students, it will be taught at a rate of 3 to 5 hours per school week.
In teaching the Moroccan educative program in three languages, Vision School will offer Moroccan students a much wider range of choices when pursuing post-secondary academic studies.
At Vision School the students aren’t limited to learning languages, they live them!
