Our bilingual Primary School

Our teaching concept is based on language immersion and individual development of the specific aptitudes and abilities of each child.

The language of instruction alternates on a half week basis, with lessons taught by a German-speaking teacher in a German-language environment and an English-speaking teacher in an English-language environment.

Each class is supported by an assistant language teacher. This serves to enhance the development of linguistic skills by a method we call "immersion plus". Children study in small classes and follow an individual study plan specifically tailored to take into account their individual talents and strengths.
