Faculty of Modern Foreign Languages
TIBHS promotes an understanding of all cultures, traditions and practices. Studying a range of languages helps develop the boys’ linguistic skills and appreciation of other cultures.
In studying the conversational mode of Arabic, students are taken through a journey on which they focus on describing their surroundings.
Through gradual progression, students learn about the leisure activities, foods and lifestyles of the native Arabs equipping them with the language and cultural knowledge of the Arabic-speaking lands.
The importance of learning an instrumental European language is not lost at TIBHS. Spoken in countries in Europe as well as North Africa, French remains a major global language.
Incorporating background knowledge of the linguistics and culture of France, students are exposed to the creativity of language in exploring personal concepts of family, environment and leisure.
