My kids are 10 & 8 years of age. Studying in our home country Sri Lanka in one of the leading school. Here in Sri Lanka, state schools provides the best education and almost every Sri Lankan national follow their education through state curriculums only. However, the primary education in Sri Lanka as per the state curriculum is in local languages only. Kids will be transfered to bilingual curriculum from grade 6 onwards and they move to English medium only after their ordinary level exams. (equivalent to 10th in India, i guess). Although our kids follow English as their 3rd language (Sinhalese is second language) it is definitely different from studying in English medium. Right? Having said that, we are considering migration, given the political & economical instability in the country. In fact, our lives are well established here, but there is no guarantee when the country is sinking. Recently, I've been offered a great position with the UN in a first world country where i could apply for a PR later on & settle. But the move will not be a simple decision, given the fact that my family (H, Kids, and Mom) is well rooted here in a high comfort zone. Particularly their school & education. Mom's health & age. Her social life etc... Me & H are happy about this offer. But we are still analyzing. We need your opinions & recommendations in particular about kids education & future. Like, how hard it would be for a 10 & 8 year old to switch to English medium & mingle with entirely different school community at this age? Will they be able to catch up & manage with the flow? Or will it affect their confidence level ? If so, is it worth the try by compromising kids future like this?
