Mother Tongue Lessons

Our Mother Tongue lessons are taught in the child’s home language and develop knowledge of his or her country.

PBIS students are able to take “Mother Tongue” lessons, focusing on the development of speaking, listening, reading and writing. The lessons also address themes relevant to the child’s homeland.

Mother Tongue lessons are available in both the Primary and Secondary Schools. They are intended for students whose home language is neither English nor Czech (Czech students follow the Czech programme at PBIS).

There are many reasons why it is important for children to continue learning in their mother tongue:

  • Bilingualism has positive effects on children's linguistic and educational development.
  • Mother tongue promotion in the school helps develop not only the mother tongue but also children's abilities in the school language.
  • Children's mother tongues are fragile and easily lost in the early years of school.
  • Not keeping up with their mother tongue language will make it more difficult for children to communicate to family and friends back in their home country.

The actual language groups offered depends on the level of interest but there should be a minimum of four pupils in each class. Students will be grouped according to their age and language ability.
