Early Learning Centre to Introduce German Language into Classrooms

ELC Teaching Team

Starting in the 2023-24 school year, the International School of Berne will introduce German into our Early Learning Centre (ELC) classrooms. Our teachers will continue to teach in English as the language of instruction, while our Assistant Teachers will speak in German to our students. Our ELC students will benefit from both English and German in the classroom during the school day.

This approach offers benefits in terms of cognitive development, integration into the local community, and enhanced communication opportunities. It will also prepare your child for specialised German lessons when joining Kindergarten.

Our approach will, of course, be adapted for each individual student to ensure that they continue to thrive in our caring learning environment.
