English is the language of instruction and communication at BISL.

Students are prepared for IGCSE examinations in English 1st Language IGCSE and English Literature IGCSE at the end of Year 11. Students without a sufficient level of English are entered for the English 2nd Language IGCSE examination.

There are two sets for Slovene in all year groups. The first set - for native speakers - studies topics and texts broadly in line with the equivalent level in the Slovenian education system, whilst the second set covers Slovene as an additional language from beginner to intermediate level.

French and German

French is our third language from Year 3 upwards. Primary students have two 45-minute sessions per week and this increases to three per week for Years 7 to 9. All students in Years 10 and 11 continue with a language option to IGCSE – either French or German.
