Curriculum

Instead of specializing in one language, all students will be led to multilingualism – beginning with German and English. Beside the English-speaking Kindergarten class, also the Kindergarten students in our German classes enjoy their first weekly play-based English lessons, and in Basis Level, bilingual English elements in selected subjects (e.g. social studies) will be added for enrichment. This process is followed throughout Primary School, finishing the years 5 and 6 with bilingual Biology classes with a strong emphasis on English. The path to diverse language acquisition will be further strengthened in the Secondary School on the way to the bilingual Maturity, where up to the half of the subjects can be taken in English. Additionally, all students learn French from Grade 6 onwards up to the Matura. For Thai students, lessons in Thai language begin from Basis Level onwards, including reading and writing Thai.
