If one of the language sections of the European schools corresponding to the native language of a pupil of category 1 and 2, has not been created this pupil has the right to follow instruction of his native language (LI). Application to do this depends on whether the school has a qualified teacher or can employ one.
Normally the pupil concerned is registered in the English, French or German section. The language of the chosen section is his L II , pupil will follow classes of LII at the same time with students from other sections that have chosen this LII . During lessons of the language of his section the student attend his mother tongue lessons. Remark: difference of levels.For example, a child from the French section but mother tongue LI Portuguese that has followed the first years of the primary and who therefore speak and write French fluently will find himself among students with LII level much lower. On the other hand, in history and geography (starting in 3S) will be facilitated.If a pupil has signed up for a language section other than German, English or French, he would be obliged to choose German, English or French as Language II. At this level the student will follow a section without a single hour in the language grammar. Example: a Spanish student in Italian section will not have Italian grammar lessons. Remark: it can be chosen as LIII or LIV.Remark: some parents doubt that the European school of Varese can assure these pupils a satisfactory level of success in the European baccalaureate .Both in Primary and Secondary the 5/6 periods allow to mother tongue of SWALS would be organised only if there is a minimum of 5 students. Otherwise reductions will be applied. That implies for Secondary: free hours. The rule does not applies for BAC levels.
