EFI Brussels is resolutely open to all nationalities. It is our policy to welcome children into our preschool or primary school with little or no French at all levels. To ensure their successful integration, we make sure that there is a stress-free transition for such children via our Portal Program. This method provides children with fast tuition in French (which will be their main tuition language) and an easy insertion into the curriculum. EFI Brussels’ Portal Program© includes a set of methods for individual tuition that are developed by our team of teachers and approved by the child’s parents. The Portal Program facilitates the integration of pupils who speak little or no French (expatriates from other countries, for example), at whatever level they are at, whether in preschool or primary school. Before these children can be integrated, we need to assess their precise linguistic ability. This assessment provides the basis on which their progress can be measured. Pupils then start the “immersion” process into ordinary classes, but their time tables are adapted, along the lines of the French Ministry of Education’s “Newcomers Program” and the “total immersion” classes of the best international schools in France.
