The Bilingual High School Program
As of the 2018-19 school year, the Bilingual Program is available in high school at Európa 2000 High School in 8, 6 and 4-year long bilingual tracks. All three tracks launch from a different language level; thus the program is available not only to students coming from the Bilingual Primary School Program, but to everyone.
The methodology applied is based on the primary school program, adjusted to the high school curriculum and to the age level of high school students. The key aspect of the Bilingual Program is CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) methodology, where language development takes place in a native English environment where language goals are embedded into subject matter content.
Our language goal is to reach level C1 - as defined in the language exams developed by the University of Cambridge - by graduation. This language level is equivalent to the Hungarian advanced level. Other than language development, our primary goal is to cultivate competences used in every walk of life. The Bilingual Program is now complete with the addition of the high school level, as one can study bilingually with native English teachers from kindergarten until graduation!
The general entrance requirements are according to the entrance procedure of Európa 2000 High School.
In the 6- and 4-year long programs, students take written and oral placement tests to assess their language level. The goal of these placement exams is to ensure that classes start with groups of students who are at relatively similar language levels.
The school follows the Hungarian National Curriculum, so the classes participating in the Bilingual Program are aligned to that.
Yes, they are exempt from the language level assessment.
