FRENCH AT THE NEAR EAST PRIMARY SCHOOL
In the 2018-2019 academic year, we included French as a second foreign language into our curriculum at the Near East Preschool and in the 2019-2020 academic year, for the first years, we included it into our primary school curriculum.
With a strong and dynamic French department staff, which includes 4 French teachers in the Near East Primary Shool and 3 French teachers in the Preschool, French education has successfully been implemented 5 days a week.
Our primary goal here is to equip all of our students who graduate from our primary school with a strong foundation and fluency in French as well as in English and send them to the secondary school where they can continue their French studies. At the secondary school, they are prepared for the internationally recognised *DELF examinations and offered a quality and certified French education.
*DELF (Diplôme d'Études en Langue Française) is an official diploma awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify the French language competency of candidates from outside France.
