View Full Version : life in Medan
We are a french family planning to live in Medan in september. I am looking for a french school or an international one for my children -at a reasonable price-(they don't speak english at all...) can anyone advice me? Do you have any idea about the price of a family house to rent in a nice area?Thank you for your help...
I may well have a bad news for you. The only french schools that I know of are in Bali and Jakarta (and maybe one in Balikpapan organised by Total -?-). I doubt that Medan has such a school. You may found National Plus school, but it would be hard to find a school proposing french curriculum.
An alternative would be home schooling with CNED (http://www.cned.fr/scolaire/).
thank you for your answer. Do you know if there is any french community there? And do you have any idea of rent home prices in Medan?
Thanks for your help.
I live at the other opposite of Indonesia and I am afraid I can not answer. However, I am sure that there is a french community in Medan. May be not big, but I would be very surprised to hear that there is none.
I have been in Medan for a couple of months, but I don't have any kids so I don't know much about schools here.
I suggest you spend sometime browsing the website MedanKu (http://www.medanku.com/).
There aren't many foreigners in Medan to start with so finding a community of one particular country might be difficult. I thought for example I could join a school to study Bahasa Indonesia but there isn't the demand for group classes.
House prices are probably a little cheaper than Jakarta. It really depends on what your needs are and what you or an Indonesian friend can negotiate. I would spend some time in temporary accommodation before making a decision as usually you need to rent a place for at least 12 months.
hi,I am indonesian staying in medan. probably I can help you out.
Housing is cheaper here than jakarta, depend which area you want to stay.if you need my help, just contact me. cheers
I sent you a PM
As I know there is no french school in medan yet , but you can check out about SIS ( Singapore Indonesia School) , They do teach English modules or Subjects and O' Levels . They O' Levels is Equal standard with Singapore English . I would SIS in medan is a branch of SIS Singapore
