    kavitha,

    matriculation you need to do second language. french/sanskrit/hindi or tamil. even the not so popular school in chennai has tough competition. the children are really stressed out. they have special classes/coaching classes. it feels as if the children are put through a roller machine.

    and padma seshadri, and few other schools look only at children with 10 gpa.

    Hi ladies,

    I should first appreciate the OP for opening a very useful thread.....
    I am putting my daughter in an indian international school.
    We need to select a 2nd lang for her, where they offer tamil / hindi / french.
    since, i myself know french, my dh wants my dd to take up french as her 2nd lang.
    (french is much more easier to score than the other 2)
    But, i feel that she needs to know at least 1 indian lang,for which i feel hindi
    is better.
    ( though dh & me studied only tamil at school level & know very little of hindi).
    Also, we may move to chennai in next 6-7 years , when she completes 5th.
    So, what does we need to opt for her hindi / french ?
    Please pour in your thoughts for this confusion of mine !!!!! :)


    Thanks a lot,
