Language sections at the ESM

The European School Munich is the only school in Munich where the official languages of all EU countries are taught by native-speaking teachers.

In organisational terms, the pupils are assigned to different language sections. The dominant language of the child is important when choosing the language section. Usually this is the mother tongue, in multilingual households it is important to choose the language that the child speaks better.

Kindergarten education is provided in the dominant language, in addition there are many activities with children of other languages. In Primary School, a second language is also taught. In grade S1 of the Secondary School, a third language is added, and later the pupils can optionally choose a fourth and fifth language.
