The International School of Berne has many offerings for children enrolled in local schools interested in learning English and we also offer language support for new students to our school who have a lower level of English. Children and teenagers wanting to improve their English can benefit from these special programmes at ISBerne:
English as an Additional Language
Students who arrive at the International School of Berne with limited English skills are supported by the English as an Additional Language (EAL) programme.
After School English Classes
We offer children aged 5 to 15 weekly in-person classes to learn English. Students interact with qualified English language instructors experienced in teaching children English as a foreign language.
Kickstart English Summer Camps
Kickstart English! is an English learning day camp for local children ages 7 - 15 and a vocational English course for 16 - 18-year-olds. Our varied program provides kids and teenagers a unique learning experience and parents the convenience and value they desire.
Grade 10 Bridging Year
The Bridging Year in English is a unique opportunity for students who have completed obligatory schooling in the Swiss education system to do, in essence, a “year abroad in English” without leaving Switzerland!
International Baccalaureate Bilingual Diploma Programme
A variation of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), our Bilingual Diploma is available to acknowledge and celebrate your child's proficiency in both English and German (or another language). The Bilingual IB Diploma maintains the rigorous academic standards of the IBDP, ensuring a broad and balanced education across various subject areas.
