Subject: Teaching of Third Language in Kendriya Vidyalayas.
In pursuance Of the decisions taken in the 99th BOG meeting held on 27.10.2014 and in continuation of the Office Memorandum No.11029-10/2012/KVS(HQ)/Acad. Dated 11.11.2014, it has been felt necessary to issue clear instructions about how the Third Language would be taught to the students Of classes VI to VIII Who had been studying German language till now.
To facilitate the children to learn the Third Language, it has been decided on that this Third Language will be taught for such children with the syllabus of the first term of Class VI, even for those children in Class VII or VIII Who had taken German as the Third Language, so that the teaching learning starts for them right from the beginning and no stress is caused to them. To further facilitate these children, the grades obtained by the students for the earlier terms of learning German as a Third Language would be considered for finalizing the compilation of results for their totals in Third Language. Subsequent levels of teaching learning of this Third Language after the syllabus of first terms of Class VI, will also follow the same graded pattern so that there is minimum stress on children for which separate instructions will be issued. Formative Assessment (FA 3&4) is scheduled to start from week 3rd/4th of November, 2014. However, there will be no FA 3&4 for these students for the Third language. Their assessment and examination schedule for the Third language will be intimated subsequently.
