Learning to speak a Foreign Language is a prerequisite for the preparation of the citizen of tomorrow. Our program is designed to provide our students with a diverse and rich foreign language environment in which they develop positive attitudes to the foreign languages we offer. In applying the international educational system of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP), students are taught English from pre-kindergarten and French or German from Grade 3 (3 Demotikou). Through creative activities children attain basic language skills at an early age.
Students learn by engaging in individual or group projects and presentations, attending and participating in plays, watching foreign language films, and borrowing literary works in a foreign language from the school library. The school introduces them to different cultures. A good example is our bilingual program. In the bilingual program students encounter English naturally and in a pleasant way. Language is taught much like it is in an English school. They participate in creative activities and celebrate holidays that are celebrated abroad such as Halloween and St. Patrick’s Day.
The Foreign Language Department is implements the IB PYP program. Our students are well prepared for the next educational level which is the MYP.
