What is a bilingual school?
A bilingual school is a center whose educational program includes an educational project in two languages, Spanish and English, as vehicular languages. This means that the use of English is not exclusive to a single subject, but is present in the student’s regular academic development.
At Fontenebro International School we have developed a bilingual method that goes beyond the usual proposal of bilingual schools in Madrid. We collaborate with schools around the world to offer our students bilingual activities both in the classroom and in international experiences.
The academic results of our students are the best guarantee, our bilingual approach ensures that students acquire a solid linguistic base during their school years, which will be fundamental for them to continue developing their skills in the future.
Why is it important to enroll your children in a bilingual program?
The importance of following a bilingual program goes beyond language learning. Students who study in a bilingual program develop their cognitive abilities at a higher level, which has an impact on other areas of learning.
English is now a core work skill. In a globalized world, it is essential to have a thorough knowledge of the global vehicular language. The period of time that covers the school development, from 1 to 18 years old, is basic to establish language skills, if during these years the student learns to communicate in several languages, these linguistic skills will be permanent.
What is the curriculum of our Bilingual Institute?
Our curricula are adapted to the different educational stages that complete the school period, in all of them English is very present not as a subject to overcome in a broader curriculum, but as a communicative method at the same level as the mother tongue.
The infant stage marks the beginning of language development. Since they are small we will learn what will be the basis of our vocabulary, we begin to handle the first grammatical structures and we develop our capacity for comprehension. Combining the learning of two languages provides the opportunity to learn, in a natural way, two different but complementary languages.
In our bilingual school in Madrid, the primary school years mean their first contact with other international students. We manage to stimulate their curiosity about languages, establishing basic skills and preparing them for the higher stages, in which improvement is the priority.
During secondary school, the teaching programs focus on technical knowledge. In reference to language, it is also a stage in which the student begins to develop a higher level, expanding his or her vocabulary and grammar base. At the end of this stage, a student has acquired an adequate level to develop a fluent communication with an English-speaking person.
The baccalaureate courses offer us the opportunity to offer technical learning, oriented towards university education and future employment.
