This center is characterized by its multilingual offer, teaching the English language from 3 years and the French language from 2nd grade of primary school. As an extracurricular activity, the possibility of learning German and Chinese is offered.
Ours is a project based on educational principles and a methodology that we started in early childhood education and that ends in high school, whose objectives and content are worked progressively in each course.
The learning of a foreign language in boys and girls is similar to the process of acquiring a mother tongue. Students begin to become familiar with their surroundings, their bodies, their daily routines, their social groups, while, at the same time, they begin to build the basis of their learning of English. In this way they will create significant associations with an air of fantasy and fun achieving a balance between safety, well-being, interest and motivation. This will make them develop a set of essential skills and abilities throughout their years of study. Coordination with tutors, especially at younger ages, is essential to ensure that English language learning is approached in an integrated and globalized manner.
It is very important for us that in the classes there is a positive climate and confidence, hence the communicative situations include humor, games, songs, stories, etc. In addition, this idea is linked to the need of children to act, so that their participation is active, reflective and adjusted to the level of each student, the teacher or teacher must initiate the information of the language, help the child interact with others, evaluate what they do, provide feedback, contextualize activities, promote communication strategies and admit error as something natural and necessary in the same process.
As our students grow, they enter a maturational stage that allows them to face new challenges in the subject and lay the foundations of grammar and comprehension both written and oral, while giving relevance to the expression and comprehension oral, so that an adequate level of language is reached that will vary depending on the interest and effort of each student and of personal aptitudes.
Within our project, we include French as a 2nd foreign language from the 2nd cycle of primary school, orienting their learning towards the four fundamental skills: written expression, oral expression, oral comprehension and writing skills. The achievement of the objectives of the different levels allows students and students who wish to submit with guarantees to the DELF tests (levels from A1 to B1).
LANGUAGES AT THE CDM
Linguatec begins in the Early Childhood Education stage with its early immersion project emulating the process of learning the mother tongue.
INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGES PROGRAM
As part of our language program, we have stays abroad in the international exchange programs with France and the USA, where our students do a cultural and linguistic immersion for a period of two months. Our twinning with the Northwest School in Seattle and the Lycée Emmanuel Mounier in Angers are a success among our students.
“The academic training is first class and the demands in the work and in the training prepare them for a future outside the school where they will be distinguished from the others. Although there are other schools where the façade is more interesting, from my own experience, the important thing is the interior. “
“When we arrived at his new institute in the USA, his father and I had planned to give him some reinforcement classes to be able to adapt to the classes in English. It was not necessary: Gonzalo’s adaptation was perfect, and demonstrated the excellent level of English of our beloved school. We can not be more grateful. “
“For us it was a priority to combine a level education with a way of educating closer to the person. We did not want to build a curriculum, we wanted to educate a person. I think our daughters will always be grateful for this decision. “
“I, as the father of the María 4 Teaching Center of my children in this school, and even now a granddaughter, and the experience has been really enriching. Each one with their own personality and qualities, have been attended and educated according to their talents “
