AMSTERDAM – Primary schools in the Zuid-Limburg border regions are to become bilingual. Eight primary schools will start with this experiment next year, the province of Limburg announced on Tuesday.

In the coming two years other primary schools may opt to voluntarily join the project, which will last 2.5 years to start. In the Maastricht region the second language of instruction will be French, in the Heerlen region it will be German.

The umbrella organisation for education Movare will be given more than EUR 300,000 from the province for the project.

The school pupils will follow part of their education in primary schools across the border. Two secondary schools are also participating in the bilingual education.
