As soon as they enter the IDBEC Kindergarten classes, all children start learning both English and Turkish. These two languages are used for the teaching of concepts in all subject areas. At IDBEC, language learning occurs in authentic and meaningful contexts rather than in isolation – this means that there is a great emphasis on the use of language for learning about concepts and for learning how to do things.
The teachers of IDBEC have strong academic backgrounds. They ensure close supervision of the linguistic and conceptual development of all learners; teachers work with both larger and smaller groups, offering individual support where necessary.
