COVID19: SINCE MAY 14 THE SCHOOL IS ADAPTING
Priority students (according to French government guidelines) resumed on-site classes at Eurécole on the May 14. They are supervised by one of the home room teachers as well as language teachers (English, German and Spanish). In addition, a classroom assistant and a sports teacher are at the school each day to make a “mini” teaching team. In this way, the students are in a safe environment while following the very strict health protocols.
Three teachers supervise arriving students in the morning (Having taken their child’s temperature before coming to school, parents relay this information on arrival. Hand sanitizer is applied to student’s hands and sanitary guidelines are followed). The classroom layout has been reorganized in order to maintain a distance between students and circulation routes have been marked so that different groups can move about safely when going to language classes, the gymnasium or within supervising teacher’s classroom.
This organization will be expanded to include other students who wish to study on-site from Thursday June 4until the end of the school year.
The majority of our students continue taking their classes via video-conferencing and our teaching staff provide on average five hours of daily lessons. All of our teachers, whatever the language of instruction, also give their students challenges, games and sclass reports to maintain the class spirit despite confinement and distance. The sports teachers and the art teacher also continue their lessons via video-conference.
Some of our students who have returned to their countries, continue to follow the lessons recorded on video as time difference does not allow them to join at the same time as their classmates. Thanks to the goodwill of our teachers, meetings between different time zones allow students to meet and keep the class spirit which is very important for all of them.
Although this is a difficult period, our teaching team is already working on preparing for next year. She reflects and learns from this particular moment of containment. Although the educational progress has been maintained, new relationships have developed between families, children and teachers. They are thinking about what tomorrow’s education will be like with the help of digital technology which has redefined the teacher-student relationship. If she remains calm and optimistic, our teaching team is preparing for any eventuality for the next school year.
Registrations for next year are therefore still in progress.

EURÉCOLE – OPEN TO EUROPE AND THE WORLD !
Founded in 1989 by Claude Duval, EURÉCOLE is a unique international school with the greatest campus there is – Paris.
EURÉCOLE has a pedagogical programme that puts equal emphasis on study and personal development – reaching out to the world with the daily practice of three languages: French, English, Spanish or German – from Pre-school through Secondary level.
According to the profiles of the pupils, they will receive a bilingual education in addition to the FLE (French as a Foreign Language) or a trilingual education beginning in kindergarten.
FOREIGN LANGUAGE FOR ADULTS
Eurécole has been specialized in teaching foreign languages since 1989 and is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Since its creation, learning foreign languages in an international environment – as from preschool – has been an integral part of our school’s curriculum and philosophy. Every year Eurécole welcomes many expatriate families whose children will gradually enroll in a French-language academic program.
At the start of the 2019 school year, Eurécole group will be opening a language school for both French and non-French speaking adults. Initially, classes will be offered in Spanish and French as a foreign language. In a globalized world where exchanges are constantly increasing, it has become essential to master more than one foreign language, both for speaking and writing. Learning a new language can be very beneficial for personal (integration/autonomy, travelling, culture) and professional reasons (career development, certification).
It is never too late to start learning another language ! MORE INFORMATION
The European Observatory of Plurilingualism as part of its observations of functions of institutions offering a multilingual program, was enthusiastic about the educational project at Eurécole and its levels of acquisition of our students: progressions, language levels and courses in situ.
Following this visit, an article was dedicated to our facility in organizing a site newsletter, thanks to this, a partnership was signed between Eurécole and the OEP.
