L2 a parents guide

L2 at ESH

When entering our school, in addition to their L1, pupils must also choose an L2 working language. Their L2 must be either English, French or German. If your child comes under the category of being a SWALS, then their L2 will be the same as the language of the section they are in. The L2 working language chosen will then remain the same as they progress through the Primary and Secondary program. 

Curriculum 

L2 tuition is based on a curriculum and three syllabuses, one for each of the three L2 languages (English, French and German).                     

Teachers

All L2 teachers are native speakers. There are three English, two French and one German specialist teacher(s). The specialist teachers teach all year groups from P1 to P5. All English, French and German class teachers will teach at least six months of L2 or support in L2 classes. When class teachers are teaching L2, they only teach L2 in their year level. 

Second Language Learning

  • The L2 program is based on the Common European Framework for Languages (ECFL) and is harmonised between the between the three L2 languages of English, French and German.

  • The aim of L2 pupils (by the end of the Primary cycle) is to reach an A2 level in all of the five competencies (Listening/Understanding, Spoken Interaction, Spoken Production, Reading, and Writing). There are six levels in total – A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2.

  • For more information about basic proficiency level in the different cycles please refer to this document: https://www.eursc.eu/Documents/2013-08-D-11-en-1.pdf

Marion Moulin

J'ai intégré l'équipe de L2 en 2015 en tant qu'enseignante de L2 français.
Enseigner le français m'a menée un peu partout dans le monde, de l'Angleterre au Canada, de l'Australie au Vietnam.
Aujourd'hui, c'est un grand plaisir de transmettre ma langue maternelle à des enfants souvent polyglottes dans un contexte multiculturel ici à ESH aux Pays-Bas.

Als Luxemburgerin bin ich mit vielen Sprachen, aber vor allem Deutsch aufgewachsen. Meine Liebe zu Sprachen hat mich auch nach England gebracht, wo ich einige Jahre lang Deutsch und Französisch an Sekundär –und Primarschulen unterrichtet habe. Hier an der ESH habe ich im Schuljahr 2013-2014 als L2 Deutschlehrerin angefangen. Mir macht meine Arbeit hier sehr viel Spaß.

Anna van Laar

I joined the ESH as a Primary teacher in 2013 after working in the North East of England, where I both qualified as a teacher and completed my Masters in Education . After a year of teaching Primary 1 at the ESH, I was given the opportunity to move into the L2 department and train as an English L2 teacher. I love working as an L2 teacher, it is a wonderfully creative and fun subject, where you see the children's second language develop and flourish.  

Guillaume Roux

J’ai intégré l’école la première année de son ouverture en 2012. J’enseigne le français L2 et je coordonne également l’enseignement de la langue seconde en cycle primaire (Français, Allemand et Anglais). J’adore enseigner et voir les élèves progresser dans leur apprentissage de la langue et devenir de plus en plus autonome. Travailler dans un contexte multiculturel et multilingue est un plaisir quotidien.

Bonjour, je m'appelle Charlotte Risgallah, je suis de nationalité française. Professeur à l’Alliance Française de La Haye, j'ai eu la chance de rejoindre l’équipe enseignante de l’école Européenne l’an dernier. A mon grand plaisir, j’enseigne aujourd’hui le français seconde langue - L2 - aux enfants de l’école primaire de la classe P1 à la classe P5. 

Katie Beth Kelley

I love teaching English L2 at the ESH! After graduating with a degree in teaching foreign language from the United States, I came to Europe, my adopted continent. I have taught English at the primary and secondary level in both France and in the Netherlands. In addition to English, I speak French, Italian and Dutch. I think the possibility to learn different languages at the ESH and interact with them daily are what makes our school extra special.
