Another valuable factor that plays a role in language acquisition is the maintenance of the student’s native tongue as this is the construct that the student refers to as a universal model. Instruction in the students’ native languages is perceived to be of high value at WIS. Currently WIS has structures in place that offer students the opportunity to participate in mother tongue support lessons. For the most part, WIS is able to provide rooms for instruction, however parents need to make arrangements and secure an instructor. To date the school has facilitated classes in Japanese, Korean, French, Danish, Slovak, Italian, Polish, Swedish, Spanish and German.
