每間國際學校的學制都不同,最好上學校網站study清楚,以免錯過報名時間。

Reception, apply in K1 and enter in K2. Year 1, apply in K2 and enter in K3. Check with individual schools.

你想小學才開始轉IS,是希望孩子先多讀點中文嗎?

What kind of IS are you aiming for? They come in all shapes and sizes, some with strong Chinese and still have lots of homework, some with teaching styles closer to their home country and are freer. The problem is, most IS has their mass intake at K2, some at K1 or K3, but if you apply for P1 then the available space is not as abundant. Some school register from birth so if your child is already age 2 it is way too late for those. Fortunately, most IS accepts registration 1-2 years prior to the year of entry, so there is still much hope, given your child's level of English is near native level.

Of course, ESF primary starts after K2, so you need to apply in September while the child is starting K2. The queue is super long though, and the chance of even getting an interview is becoming slimmer and slimmer each year. If you are very keen on getting your child into a quality IS, i recommend that you don't wait until Primary 1, otherwise most spots are already taken.

你嘅分享好詳盡,多謝晒。其實我都知宜家先諗轉IS比較遲,因為之前個女仲細,都未完全了解佢性格,但越來越發現傳統學校未必岩佢。因為之前報pn及k1我都無了解過IS, 所以都唔係太清楚。不過想報k1時已經太遲,大多數申請已經結束,所以先考慮p1先轉。其次,我個女比較痴身,返左pn一段時間都唔係太鐘意返學,對佢嚟講分離同適應新環境係比較大挑戰,所以k1比佢直升,留係同一環境,對佢學習可能比較好,等到p1佢大啲先轉校可能佢會容易啲接受。但我嘅擔心,正如你所講,到p1時學位已經好少,再加上比較嘅IS我地又負擔唔起,所以可能轉到嘅機會比較渺茫。

仲有,我地屋企以廣東話為主,我女只係明白某些簡單英文指令,如果佢係k打好啲個底,對佢interview有幫助。不過其實英文唔好,係咪都好難會收?

如果佢分離同適應新環境係比較大挑戰,咁點解你覺得讀IS適合佢?
IS kids are usually independent and curious. Students who are active thinkers and learners are more suitable for IS. Can you explain why you think her character is more suitable for IS? Perhaps there are other options....

如果只係明白某些簡單英文指令,考最基本的ESF幼稚園K1還有一線生機。不少 IS K2已要求孩子英文對答如流(in addition to other requirements)。到了考P1更加不用說了。如果你想佢打好啲個底,只靠LS kindie一定只會越拉越遠,因為就算英文堂是外藉老師教,同學仔在playground都係講中文。LS班內老師一對幾十人,你話佢有幾多機會講英文?若要對佢interview有幫助,一係加讀多間IS幼稚園(仲要係多外藉人士那隻)、一係找NET天天狂補英語會話,不過eitherway小孩子都會很辛苦。為了考好的LS小學我知道很多學生都已經拉到盡,琴祺書畫樣樣齊,如果要轉考IS、一係就唔aim LS不用補東補西,但係如果到頭來IS唔得的話,咁又兩頭唔到岸⋯⋯ 如果孩子已經在LS (i assume she is in a very good LS kindie), i suggest that you still go for LS, but look for ones that are suitable for her character, and aim for IS only as a secondary option.

Other parents please help comment.

I agree with jolalee that you should either send your daughter to an IS kindie or get a NET for extra tutoring in order to improve your daughter's English proficiency. Start talking to your daughter in English now. Otherwise there is almost no chance to get into an IS. Most IS require the children to be fluent in English, if not at native level, even for K1/reception classes. I know a few IS kindies which do not require any interview but I am not sure at this moment whether they still have any vacancies.

點評

jolalee  DBIS doesn't need interview as well, but you MUST apply from birth. Plus the school is 90% non chinese so i don't think it is suitable for kids with HK parents unless the family plans to move abroad   發表於 14-4-16 23:52

Nowadays every school has a long queue. Better to submit application as early as possible, especially those kindies with playgroups.
