NISL is een unieke school. Een school waar iedereen elkaar kent. We zijn een internationale school waar het Brits curriculum onderwezen wordt. Tegelijkertijd is NISL trots op haar Nederlandse identiteit. Zo geven we bijvoorbeeld Nederlandse Taal en Cultuur lessen en vieren we Sinterklaas en Koningsdag schoolbreed.

“Nederlandse Taal en Cultuur lessen” (NTC) is a unique programme to NISL that provides a framework for Dutch children in Lagos to learn about Dutch/Flemish culture, continue development of Dutch language skills and allow for easier transition upon returning to the Netherlands or Belgium.

Dutch Language lessons are already incorporated in the regular education programme for children within our English stream classes. NTC classes are run by our experienced team of teachers for about three hours per week. Younger learners expand their vocabulary in a play based way through fun and engaging activities whilst older students focus on spelling, grammar, reading and writing in Dutch.

Students are tested in the same manner as children in the Netherlands as the classes utilize Dutch books and methods. Parents are kept up to date with their child’s progress through the parent NTC WhatsApp groups and sharing of the termly curriculum maps. We warmly encourage parents to support children with homework tasks to reinforce lessons and to make use of the extensive on-site library with many up to date Dutch books available.
