Language of Study
The primary language at our school is English.
We accept students of all levels of English proficiency and work with them to build the skills
necessary to be successful in our curriculum.
Our Early Education Teachers are able to assist students in both English and Czech.
Our Early Education Specialists, Learning Expert Teachers, and Subject Expert Teachers primarily speak English.
Our students also have the opportunity to study Czech as one of their foreign languages
from the early years of our program through graduation.
Our students complete their BASIS International School Prague course of study at the end of Grade 12.
Our curriculum in Grade 13 focuses on preparing for the Czech graduation exam (Maturita)
to enable our students to be competitive at domestic universities as well.
Our administrative team is available to assist non-English-speaking parents.
Full immersion or multi-language approach: The method used at BASIS Beginners Prague as well as at BASIS International School Prague is often referred to as Full English Immersion. This method is successfully implemented at all BASIS International Schools. Our students can also choose from several other languages during their studies (French, German, Spanish, Mandarin, etc.). Czech and foreign students who want to obtain a Czech high school diploma must study the Czech language.
Multi-cultural opportunities: While our program recognizes the global nature of the world for which we prepare our students, in the early years, the program is quite focused. Since the curriculum is based on our American model with full English immersion, we focus on the English language, as well as English and American literature, history, and culture. Because our school is located in Prague, our standard curriculum will incorporate local elements so that students benefit from their environment, which is rich with intriguing history and culture.
Since we are a part of a global network, a network of BASIS schools using the same curriculum, we can offer to our students an exchange learning program in one of our schools located in the United States. This is a great opportunity to obtain the full immersion experience.
