Need inputs on schools - Lausanne

Dear All,
I am an indian living in India and moving to Lausanne with my hubby and 4 year old son in Jan 2019. Would be in Switzerland for 2 to 3 years .
It would be great help if we get guidance about Private school.

My son would turn 4 years by March 2019. He is going to Nursery(Pre Kg ) in India.
We are evaluating on both private school, public as well as international school as our stay will be for 2 to 3 years in switzerland
My son doesnt have any basic knowledge on French. I would want my son to learn French.

Any inputs would be really appreciated.

Also please let me know about EBSR School and ISL .
Does EBSR School medium of instruction is English ?
I would prefer the medium of instruction in English only and French as the additional language which he learns.

please let me know school namesl which needs to be considered in Lausanne vicnity

Thanks in advance

Re: Need inputs on schools - Lausanne

I'm sorry, I'm a bit confused about which kinds of information you would like.

According to its website, the B in the name EBSR stands for Bilingual. So no, the medium of instruction is not only English, but also French.

According to its website, the ISL is an English-language School.

Here's another thread, in case this gets you closer to what you'd like to know. Or else, please do ask specific questions, and maybe someone here could then help you.

Re: Need inputs on schools - Lausanne

I am sorry if its confusing. I am looking for a school which teaches only english as a medium of instruction in the school for all classes and french as only an additional language taught for learning purpose.
any other input on the name of school falling in the above category helps.
Also i do not understand the term bilingual taught in school. does this mean they teach in two languages one in english and other in french in classes

Re: Need inputs on schools - Lausanne

Oh, dear. I wondered whether this information is not simply available on the website. So I read http://www.ecole-bilingue.ch/en/becoming-bilingual/, and then I understood, as I hadn't before, that it does sound rather confusing.

Here, however, it is clearer:
http://www.ecole-bilingue.ch/en/terms/
and here:
http://www.ecole-bilingue.ch/en/curriculum-3-15-years/.
