On mutual agreement among participating schools, student selection is based primarily on a first come, first served basis. The programme begins with total immersion in Estonian in kindergarten and Grade 1 leading to the introduction of Russian language instruction in Grade 2. Inspired by the success of the early CLIL programme, a late CLIL programme beginning in Grade 6 was launched in four schools in
