ASM’s language offerings include French, Spanish, and Mandarin.
French and Mandarin are offered as a second language from grade 6 from beginning to higher level courses and culminate in the IB exams in grades 11 or 12 (optional).
Native Spanish speakers or those seeking entry to Spanish universities are required to follow the Programa Oficial curriculum which is a set sequence of courses established by the Spanish Ministry of Education. Those students wishing to follow this program must have a native level in reading and writing in the Spanish language.
Non-native Spanish speakers follow the Spanish as a Second Language Curriculum. The main objective of this program is to enable students to communicate in Spanish and to acquire a greater understanding of the Spanish culture. Communication skills may range from single usage (as students are initially exposed to the language) to complete bilingualism. Students who have followed the IB curriculum will be prepared to take the examinations at the ‘ab initio’, B, and A levels.
