Target language as a medium of education

Samenvatting

During my LIO at the Stedelijk College in Eindhoven an inspection from the European Platform had shown that the amount target language usage was applied insufficiently. The school kept his bilingual certificate but needs to improve its educational system in regards to this before 2014, when the European Platform comes back for their next inspection.
A bilingual program is bound by the 'Landelijk Netwerk tto' to offer 50% of the subject taught at that school through English. These lessons need to make use of the English language for 100% of the time, pupils and teachers alike.
Now that the Stedelijk College has to focus its attention to the proper implementation of the target language in its bilingual classes this research was made to help the school understand where improvements need to be made.
Who needs to improve, students or teachers? What needs to improve and how do we get there? The main question will be: How can we improve the application of the target language in bilingual education?
Four different data sets were collected to find the answer:
1. Pupil's survey
2. Teachers' survey
3. Observations
4. Interviews
After the results were analysed it showed that not only pupils or teachers were responsible but the organisation of the bilingual program too. The school did not have rules and/or regulations for the application of the target language and over the years the amount of used target language in classes started to shift.
In order to reach its goals before 2014, the Stedelijk College needs to set rules for the use of the target language by teachers and pupils. Teachers need to be stricter in regard to their own and their pupil's use of this target language and the pupils need to be made aware of the benefits regarding their language acquisition.
