Founded in the fall of 2014, Cosmopolitan Bilingual School is a vibrant creative bilingual school located in the heart of Dakar catering to the needs of children 2 to 12 years of age.
We are committed to educating the whole child, striving to provide quality education in a warm loving environment. Here foundation is laid, cultural barriers are broken, developing and nurturing their sense of wonder, inspiration and curiosity.
In recognition of parents as our student’s first educators, we work in partnership with families reinforcing positive values already acquired. .
Kids are bored with tasks that are monotonous. Our school is designed to spark curiosity and an excitement for learning in young children that will lead them into the next step of their academic journey, reinforcing the independence a child exhibits by providing them with stimulating and challenging activities that promote all aspects of his or her development.
The school runs two programs:
A French program, which is based on the Senegalese educational system.
An English program as:
- English as a Second Language (ESL) taught to students from an English-speaking nation.
- English as a Foreign Language (EFL) taught to natives and students from non-English speaking country
Children without any knowledge of either English or French or both are initiated to the acquisition of these languages through the use of visual aids with the view of acquiring a solid linguistic foundation in both areas.
We create an environment rich in English and French Language. Dual language activities are planned, bilingual books, posters, toys and learning tools are found throughout the classroom. As children move through our program, the number of words learned each week increases and the more fluent he/she becomes in both languages.
