First Language Maintenance and Development
Bilingual is Better- "No one should have to choose one language and culture over the other because having both is undeniably better than just having one."
The First Language Maintenance and Development (FLMD) program is intended to provide language learning programs that would respect, maintain and develop home languages and cultures of young learners who come to school.
The aim of the program is to:
· Respect, develop and maintain their first language
· Foster a sense of self-identity
Here at NPS, we offer three FLMD Languages -Hindi, Gujarati, Punjabi. In our class, we teach students how to speak, listen, read and write in the target language. We also celebrate different festivals, so the students have a rich cultural understanding with which they share with our school community.
"Our culture, our traditions, our language are the foundations upon which we build our identity."
