The Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) are a chain of over 1000 state run schools spread all over India. Their mission is to pursue excellence and set the pace in the field of school education. They also strive to initiate and promote experimentation and innovations in education. Till very recently the state run schools did not teach any foreign languages. English, Hindi and Sanskrit or one of the regional languages were the compulsory languages. But these were regarded as national languages, not as foreign languages. At the same time students in private schools had been learning German as a result of the Goethe-Institute Die Initiative „Schulen: Partner der Zukunft“ (PASCH) since 2008.
