Mother Tongue Languages

The Hillgrove Mother Tongue language learning experience focuses on exposing students to their cultural roots through a series of workshops, competitions, local and overseas learning journeys. We believe that language learning is not confined to the classroom and should be actively applied in our everyday lives.
