Bilingualism at Tessa International School

A bilingual education is unparalleled to any other learning approach and shows benefits that will be carried throughout your child’s lifetime. Research indicates that the brain circuits associated with language learning are more flexible at a young age. That is why here at TESSA, we start learning French, Spanish or Mandarin as early as 2 years old with 80% of learning in the target language.

    Tessa International School Reviews

    1 review
    Our son has been at TESSA since it opened in Jan 2017. He joined as part of the Spanish 2s program, and is now a happy and healthy kindergarten student. He loves his school and takes great pride in his bilingualism. We could not be more impressed in his development. The International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years curriculum at Tessa inspires creative thinking, problem solving and a global perspective.
