This really seems to be a ploy to have foreign teachers that don’t know the local language “teach”their foreign language to local people. Claim it is important to teach in English.  People say it is best to learn a language just as one did their mother tongue, but that ignores the fact it takes much, much longer to get a solid base that way. Children, especially nowadays, are rarely that patient. It is better to gradually introduce the foreign tongue once students are familiar with the basic vocabulary taught through their own language.

Thus, if I ever see an ad like this one, I will be sure not to send my kids to that school:

At least they claim straight away that they don’t actually teach English. There is definitely truth in those words.
