French Language Intensive 5th Grade
At Kilittaşı Schools, all students receive 20 hours of English education, from grade 1 to grade 4, thirteen+ hours of ELA (English-Maths-Science-Social Studies), and 7 hours of branch courses (PE, IT, VA, Music). In addition, French is given two hours.
Students who acquire English as a mother tongue until the 4th grade receive preparatory education in the 5th grade under the guidance of a native French teacher. At the end of the year, they reach a level where they can master all the skills of French and English. Instead of learning French only as a language, students also have the opportunity to learn about French culture through varied activities and traditional trips to France throughout the year. We aim for our students to reach the A1 level in DELF-DALF exams at the end of 5th grade. English continues for four hours at the 5th-grade level. Students maintain a solid foundation in English through book analysis in English.
6th – 7th and 8th grade
In secondary school, an enriched curriculum encourages students’ cultural, intellectual, physical, and emotional development. This curriculum is equipped with projects to support and develop our students academically. In addition, it is designed to explore students’ interests and potential. Although each course has different goals and achievements, students are encouraged to plan their dreams instead of competing against each other.
The school also offers opportunities for students who want to enter international competitions and exams such as Kangaroo Mathematics, DELF, and Cambridge Language Exams.
The middle school years are a crucial period in students’ progress towards independence. Therefore, students reinforce their collaboration and leadership skills by attending elective courses such as Round Square, MUN, JMUN, and Destination Imagination.
