Learning Languages

Children of the French school become bi- and often trilingual. This is an asset that gives our kids a head-start not only in terms of communication skills but also in many other aspects of life.
  • Multilingual children usually perform better in multi-tasking, decision making and problem solving activities.
  • Children will have more options when it comes to choosing further education. They can go to the Slovene system, as well as continue in the French but can also adapt to English language education more easily than others.
  • Later on, children can stand out on the competitive labour market and get jobs easier and quicker. There are currently over 220 million French speakers worldwide.
  • Multilingual children are more adaptable and have a broader outlook which will be a necessary skill in the globalised future.
In the kindergarten two to four year old pupils receive weekly introductions to Slovenian and English, where they learn songs, poems and rhymes.

In the ‘Grande section’ (5 year old students), Slovenian and English courses are taught 2 hours per week by teachers trained to teach foreign languages to very young ‘students’.

CP to CM2 (1st to 5th grade) pupils continue to take English and Slovenian classes by native speaker teacher, 2 hours a week for English and 3 hours a week for Slovenian.

The languages provided to middle school pupils, besides Slovenian which is mandatory, include English, German, Spanish, Italian, and Latin.
