Basque - Multilingualism

Linguistic project

To guarantee educational multilingualism with the presence of four languages in school life: Basque, Spanish, English and French

The key objective of our language project is to provide the necessary tools for today's children, who will be the adults of the future, to live in a multilingual society. Beyond the initial bilingualism proposed in Lizarra Ikastola in its first years of existence (Basque-Spanish), the current objective is to guarantee educational plurilingualism with the presence of four languages in their school life (Basque-Spanish-English-French) and a communicative methodology.

Considering the importance we give to the treatment of languages in our daily work, these are the general objectives to be taken into account:

  • To make Basque (Basque speakers) multilingual speakers. The goal is for students to master the two languages of Navarre (Basque and Spanish), to have a good command of English as a first foreign language and a basic knowledge of a second language as close to home as French.
  • To make Basque the main language in the community, ensuring the transmission, development and dissemination of this language and Basque culture in its environment.
