In the first year of the Primary cycle, all pupils choose a second language (the first foreign language), referred to as L2. The second language can be English, French or German. Pupils follow the L2 up to the end of Secondary school, where subjects as History, Geography and Economy are taught in the L2.

The starting point for L2 lessons is the common curriculum for second language acquisition. The objectives are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Modern Foreign Languages: Learning, Teaching and Assessment. When learning the second language, attention is paid to the following skills:

Listening, speaking, reading comprehension and writing.
