Bilingual teaching in the world was introduced in the 1980s. It has been held in schools in Serbia since 2004 and is now taking place in 13 schools, eight primary and five high schools.
Students in bilingual classes study according to the curriculum that is regulated by the Ministry of Education and is valid for all students in Serbia. Their advantage in continuing their education, for example in France, is a high level of knowledge of the French language and culture and a knowledge of professional terminology in the subjects they have studied in that language.
In bilingual classes, at least 30 percent of classes are taught in a foreign language.
In our high school, bilingual classes are conducted in two ways: as French-Serbian or English-Serbian.
The first generation of students attending French bilingual classes at our high school was enrolled in 2011.
This year, the 10th High School Mihajlo Pupin will enroll one bilingual class (French).
The first students to attend English bilingual classes enrolled in 2013.
This year, the 10th High School Mihajlo Pupin will enroll one bilingual class (English).
