Languages pathway

Enhanced learning of modern languages from primary school onwards and the promotion of a multilingual education are at the heart of the French overseas education project. They contribute to the excellence of our schools and meet the expectations of families.

The teaching methods used aim to improve all students’ mastery of at least three languages in addition to French, in order to prepare them as effectively as possible for higher education, their career plans and their future as citizens of an open world.



The PARLE pathway (adapted and reinforced foreign language pathways) designed by the AEFE aims to improve the quality of students’ language training and to strengthen their command of a modern foreign language other than Vietnamese. It is offered in English and enables pupils to join the American International Section in 6e and 2nde or the European Section from 2nde.


In addition to the statutory timetable for modern languages, subject-based teaching in English (Art, QLM, EPS) based on the EMILE principle (teaching an integrated subject in a foreign language) is offered. in primary education and DNL (Discipline Non Linguistique). History-Geography at secondary level.

American International Section programme

Since the beginning of the schoolyear 2023-2024, the Lycée Français Alexandre Yersin 6e and 2nde pupils can attend the American International Section programme.

This option will be offered to the other school levels in the following years and the first pupils will attend the IFB International French Baccalaureate in June 2025.

International sections in the primary and secondary parts enable bilingual and bicultural courses particularly attractive amid the worldwide French schools network because multilingual skills are developed and enhanced. They are academically recognized by the French Ministry of Education because they respond to numerous demanding criteria  (specifically graduated teachers, cultural partnerships etc…).

International section students build themselves a place as citizens of the world, explore the world around them.
