all the benefits from bilingualism

Our bilingual project

Let´s see how do we work in English!

Our English programme

Perfect pronunciation from native and bilingual teachers

We implement a bilingual programme in which children enjoy English from toddlers in the most natural and intuitive way. In order to achieve this objective, we structure our English project in 4 different axis:

All of our project activities are conducted in either English or Spanish (no translations – they only communicate in English during English classes). Therefore 50% of all classes are conducted in English.

We use an English literacy methodology based in Synthetic Phonics (recommended by the British Department of Education) by which children learn English naturally by assimilating the 42 English sounds. Students will have a minimum of 3 synthetic phonics sessions every week.

We believe it is essential that children assimilate the pronunciation in the most appropriate way possible: for this reason, they will constantly work with native British and bilingual teachers (C1 / C2 level equivalent) to enable them to work their modulation and pronunciation of each sound correctly.

In order to allow our children to live English language in the most natural way, it´s crucial to expose them to an English ambiance in which they can enjoy English naturally. Therefore, they will permanently be immersed in a climax in which English language flows spontaneouslly.

Some hints about how do we develop our English programme

  • … According to a study carried out by the Spanish Ministry of Education on more than 30,000 students, Spanish children exposed to English from a bilingual perspective have much better native language skills than monolingual children, even though they attend 40% less Spanish language classes?
  • … The British Department of Education, as part of its recent education system reform, has  established that Systematic Synthetic Phonics is the most suitable method to develop native English from a native perspective?
  • … Our students are used to live English language in the most natural way in any possible circumstance. As an example, during the annual Christmas Performance they play either in Spanish or in English and Chinese… and they trully do a great work!
