Immersion classes in our Primary Schools

Joining a bilingual school in France often requires having a certain level of French and English, which is not always the case for children who have lived abroad for years, or since they were born.

We provide these students with the best suitable option: our immersion classes offered by EIB Monceau and EIB de La Jonchère. For one year, students join a class that is focused on intensive language lessons, without losing an academic year.

In order to meet the requirements of students who do not speak French, or lack fluency, the school has set up immersion programmes from CM1 to CM2. From September 2021, the school will also offer English immersion classes for students in CE1 / CE2 who do not speak fluent English, this time with 75% of classes taught in English and 25% in French.

EIB Monceau, a bilingual school in the 8th district of Paris, welcomes students from Petite Section to CM2, and offers bilingual education that includes 25% English and 75% French classes. Children who do not speak fluent French from CP to CM2 can also join our immersion classes.
