International Education

Education is a passport. As the world becomes more globalised, more students are striving to gain an international education and 21st-century skills. Our international courses ensure that students cultivate the critical thinking, broad knowledge and multilingual self-expression needed to be a successful global citizen, wherever they find themselves in the world.

Our international courses give students access to a wide range of subjects, some of which are found at only a handful of international schools in Hong Kong. At i-Learner, our first-rate tutors are making these subjects available to each and every student who is determined to succeed in an international setting.

Students not only have access our specially-designed Voyage and Discovery secondary programmes, they can also take IB and IGCSE courses and choose from Latin, Classical Greek, French, German and Spanish to build up their global education portfolio.

Over 60% of words in English are derived from Latin, either directly or through French. This means… Read More

Spanish

Spanish is one of the most popular foreign languages in schools across the world. Students are drawn to the warmth and charm of the language, as well as its accessibility.
