Bilingual Education [fr]
The provision of English-French bilingual education is currently in progress. The families are solicited by the multilingual context of Hong Kong and would like to seize this opportunity for their children.
The Lycée Français International provides a professional bilingual education and the French kindergartens include such a possibility in their curricula.
To provide more opportunities, the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau also supports the development of two projects for English-French-courses in other schools. In September 2014 or 2015, the developers aim for:
- A class should be soon available in primary local schools with the base of French educational system.
- A bilingual stream in primary school and the secondary schools should be available in English-speaking education.
Families who are interested in the bilingual education can contact the attaché of educational and linguistic affairs for study guidance and language advice if necessary.
The attaché can also give talks in educational institutions and attend parents meetings for question answering sessions.
