English is the most important language for global understanding. And this is why it plays such a key role at DISDH. Children can start learning English at Primary School – initially as an optional subject in Grades 1 and 2. From Grade 8 or 9, we also offer bilingual lessons in geography and history. English is practiced in a variety of ways. Pupils give presentations, work in groups and hone their language skills in debates. This intensive preoccupation with language ensures our pupils become exceptionally proficient in English.
Outside the classroom, pupils can improve their English proficiency further by participating in the Model United Nations (MUN), where they train rhetorical skills and become confident in public debating.
