All teachers at Berlin Cosmopolitan School are language instructors and all students are language learners, regardless of what language they are speaking at home or country they come from. All students have their own background and their unique contributions, which are crucial for defining their cognitive development and in maintaining their cultural identity. At BCS, we make a commitment to our students and parents to provide a learning community that promotes and supports language development in a multilingual environment that fosters confident, creative and responsible learners through inquiry based instruction.
The first foreign language for most students at our school is either English or German.
Already in grade 5, students choose Spanish or French as their second foreign language. Starting grade 9, Spanish and French can be chosen as one of the four elective subjects offered.
Spanish, French and Chinese can be selected as an afternoon activity within our Extracurricular Programme as of grade 1.
BCS is the first school in Berlin to implement the innovative programme called Accelerative Integrated Methodology (AIM) to teach foreign languages, a joyful and effective way to learn a foreign languages. Studies have shown, that with the help of AIM, languages are learned better, faster and with lots more fun! Learn more at the BCS YouTube channel.
