About our bilingual English/French Primary school on the outskirts of Toulouse
Kaleidoscope École Bilingue is a English/French bilingual school educating children from 3-11. The school is located on the outskirts of Toulouse in Plaisance Du Touch, (ideally placed at the heart of the aeronautical district, between Colomiers, Salvetat-Saint-Gilles, Pibrac, Tournefeuille and Plaisance-du-Touch).
Bilingualism is at the very heart of Kaleidoscope École Bilingue. Bilingualism is the ability of an individual to alternate between two languages according to their needs; through the development of oral and written communication. Studies have shown acquisition of these skills is mainly in primary and we have structured our teaching method directly to this objective.
At Kaleidoscope École Bilingue we know that giving children the chance to become bilingual from an early age brings them an undeniable asset in life, whether for the pursuit of their studies or for their personal and professional development. We develop their ability to alternate between the two languages through oral and written skills. Here at Kaleidoscope École Bilingue our children learn and grow in a multilingual and multicultural environment.
In our primary school, bilingualism is practiced daily and is divided into mornings in one language and afternoons in the other. Attention is paid, among other things, to the discovery of writing and it is essential to practice both languages daily, including on Wednesdays.
