Dealing with language diversity at  he OSZ Mals

All school sections of the High School Centre in Mals are public secondary schools with German as their official language of teaching and education.
However, we offer additional counselling for German and Italian within the financial and human resources available to us. A1-level language skills are highly recommended for students entering first grade.

For students who have low language skills in German or Italian:

  • 1st class:
    German:
    Depending on the available resources , the students are taken out from regular classes and taught in DFI lessons (German as Foreign Language). If the required competences are not achieved at the end of the school year, pupils will be given the opportunity to fill their gaps over the summer and take a catch-up examination on the A2 language level at our school or obtain a A2 language certificate from an accredited institution.
