INTEGRATED LANGUAGES

ENGLISH

Our educational project is based on principles and methodologies whose objectives and content we start during early childhood education and are progressively worked at each course level until high school.

Foreign language acquisition for children is similar to the process of acquiring one’s mother tongue. Students begin to become familiar with their surroundings, their bodies, their daily routines, their social groups, while, at the same time building the foundation of their future English education. In this way they form meaningful associations in a fun and creative manner while 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 teachers, especially at younger ages, is essential to ensure that English language learning is approached in an integrated and globalised manner.

It is very important for us that classes offer a positive atmosphere; therefore communicative situations include humour, games, songs, stories, etc. In addition, this idea is linked to the need for children to act, in which case their participation is active, reflective and adjusted to the level of each student, the teacher initiates the information of the language, helps the child interact with others, evaluates what they do, provides feedback, contextualises activities, promotes communication strategies and admits error as a natural and necessary part of the language acquisition process.

As our students grow, their new levels of maturity allow them to face new challenges in the subject and to lay the foundations for grammar and both written and oral comprehension. Emphasis on speaking and listening comprehension permits each student to reach an adequate level of language depending on each student’s interest, effort of and abilities.

FRENCH

Within our project, we include French as a second foreign language by 3rd grade of primary school, orienting their learning towards the four fundamental skills: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. The achievement of the objectives of the different levels allows our students who wish to take the DELF tests (levels from A1 to B2).

INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM

As part of our language program, we have international exchange programs with schools in France and the USA where our students have the opportunity for cultural and linguistic immersions during a period of two months. Our school twinning projects with the Northwest School in Seattle and the Lycée Emmanuel Mounier in Angers are highly successful 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. “

Gemma Najas

“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. “

Chelo Pulido

“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 “
