Hi Shan/All, Ystday night was browsing IL. Got jitters when chanced upon these forums about R2I and selection of schools.I went through the full R2I section ystday. So many experiences shared. I know sooner or later we may also have to shift to Chennai. I thank Shan for pouring in so many suggestions. Though still i feel light headed thinking on which school to select for my kids. Ystday a tear did escape my eyes imagining the stress initially which children would have to cope up with. They are very familiar with Chennai since we have been visiting frequently and will adjust well. I would like help from my friends. I would like to know if Tamil is a compulsory language in the schools in Chennai. What are other languages allowed and from which standard. I have gone through other threads and understood french can be selected too. P.S: I have posted the school query in the appropriate thread. Love, Parvathi.
