A typical section class is composed of a rich mixture of students from very different backgrounds. Approximately 50% will be students of purely francophone origin who have been in the section since 6ème and whose excellent level of English now means they can be considered bilingual and attend classes with their anglophone peers.
The other 50% includes a number of students from totally angophone families. Some of these may have lived in France all their lives while others may have arrived in the area relatively recently and be boarders. Other students come from Anglo-French families and have therefore been bilingual from an early age. Some will have followed the ASEICA program since primary level. There is also a small minority of students whose mother tongue is neither French nor English, so they are tri- even quadrilingual!
Multiple backgrounds of students enrich the program and benefit everyone!
