Foreign Language

Majority of Aerospacers are self-confessed Japanese anime fans.  Luckily for our Grades 9 and 10 students, they have Nihongo classes twice a week where they learn to write and speak using the Japanese language.  Integrating Foreign Language (Nihongo) in our high school curriculum has been very beneficial to our Filipino students because it prepares them for local and international opportunities that would require communicative competence in a second foreign language.

As the number of Japanese enrollees is increasing in IAU, they no longer feel awkward getting along with their Japanese classmates but feel at home with them because they can already understand and speak several Nihongo words and even a few Nihongo phrases and sentences. There’s no best way to foster friendship with foreign classmates than to learn their language.
