The point is that when you install additional languages you don't set up 
keyboard layouts. Also you don't have to install additional langs. if 
you only wish to enable the students to type text in their native language.

This is not a font issue either. You should setup keyboard layouts. 
Setting up the layouts depends of which dekstop are you using KDE, Gnome 
or XFCE. It is possible to set up layouts for all of them.
