Discover in video the portrait of Tahy from South Korea, an 11th Grader in the International American Stream (SIA) at Shanghai French School.
Originally from South Korea, Tahy entered Shanghai French School when she was four. She had been exposed to French when her family lived in France and where she attended a French preschool. However, with both her parents not speaking French and with the language at home being Korean, FLSCo helped her get through her studies and provided help with homework understanding when needed. “Studying in the International American Stream, most of my classes are still in French. But then in addition, I have English history, geography, and English language and literature.”
