German/English classes in schools in Neuchatel

Hi,

My daughter has been bugging me to find out at which age children are taught a foreign language in school. We're moving from Germany to the Neuchatel area. Our kids don't speak any French and our eldest will be in 2nd grade.

Thanks!

Re: German/English classes in schools in Neuchatel

English doesn't begin until secondary level (9th grade) although they will introduce it at primary level in 2013.

They begin German in primary but I'm not sure which year as our son was already in final year primary when we arrived but I think it must be 2nd (which is now labelled 4th) as the head said they had already done 4 years.
