At Berlin Cosmopolitan School is a bilingual school and all teachers are language instructors. All students are language learners, regardless of what language they are speaking at home or country they come from. Each student has his or her own background and their unique contributions, which is 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.
Within the curriculum, the first foreign language for most students is English or German. The second foreign language taught as early as grade 5 is Spanish. Starting grade 9 Chinese can be chosen as one of the three elective subjects offered.
Spanish, French and Chinese can be selected as an afternoon activity within our Extracurricular Programme.
