Distance Learning FAQ

How Can We Help You Today?

The following is a list of the most frequently asked questions about the Distance Learning Resource Center (DLRC) which provides support, facilities, and resources for home-school families at Dalat International School.

If you have further questions please contact the Dalat Office.

The DLRC provides one-on-one help with your child’s educational needs. We will help you:

  • Evaluate educational options for your children and their long-term implications.
  • Address homeschooling issues and concerns.
  • Use technology in your children’s education.
  • Address second-language and ESL issues.
  • Assist students with special learning needs.
  • Process third culture kid issues and prepare for transition and re-entry experiences.

The DLRC resource library includes:

  • General TCK and homeschool resources available to borrow (curriculum choice, issues, methods, philosophy, etc.)
  • Supplemental activity resources and reading materials available to borrow.
  • Limited selection of textbooks and homeschool curriculum available for review.

DLRC membership is open to families living in Penang who are educating their children at home, however educational consultations are open to all.

The DLRC exists to help parents find and implement the best possible educational option for each of their children. This often means homeschooling, but it also may mean local schools, international schools, or combinations of each.

There is no real answer to this question. Each child and each teacher will have a type of curriculum that suits them best. The challenge is to find a curriculum that works for both.

The DLRC offers consultation and several great resources to help with this choice.


DLRC does not provide or advocate one curriculum over another. There are too many great curriculum choices that change rapidly for DLRC to be able to stock them adequately. DLRC members can look through some of the curriculum samples that have been donated


DLRC is a support for parents who are teaching their own children or using other alternative educational methods
