In the final two years of secondary education, ISA offers Language A as part of the set school program in Dutch, English, and Japanese. For the student who wishes to present a different language A as part of her/his IB Diploma program, ISA offers school-supported self-taught literature. This option is available at the standard level only. Instruction for the school supported self-taught option is delivered through two instructors.
– School supported self-taught Coordinator (SSST Coordinator) provides support and assistance in understanding the demands of the program and the assessments. The students will have an assigned class for meeting with the self-taught coordinator.
– The tutor, a specialist in the literature of the language studied, helps the student understand the literature and works with the student to develop her/his writing/communication skills in the language studied. The student and the tutor meet regularly.
The mother-tongue coordinator works with the family to find a suitable tutor. The cost of the tuition is paid by the family, and the family may be eligible for a rebate if conditions apply. For details, please contact the mother tongue coordinator.
ISA provides mother-tongue language classes as an additional service; as such, the tutor’s fee is an additional cost. For details, please contact the mother tongue coordinator.
