Bilingualism is today a reality in our Center.
The door of the school library is closed… Inside are the 4th grade students. The impatient parents are waiting outside ... The door opens and we are faced with a show that makes us feel proud of what the students can do in a playful way and through enjoyment.

We are living one of the “English Week” activities and each course has chosen an author who has studied in depth (his life, his work…). In this case, the American writer, Dr. Seuss.


Boys move naturally from one activity to another  explaining to parents and guests what the games consist of and even inviting them to play with them in English with total ease. In a while they are going to represent a play based on "The Cat in the Hat" and to close they have prepared an open debate in English between parents-students-teacher that will not leave anyone indifferent.


Parents who have just left the classroom don't need more; and although there are more indicators, such as external evidence of  Trinity College London or the  Cambridge ESOL Exams,  even  the prizes obtained in  quizzes etc ... what a parent wants to see is that their child is able to communicate in English fluently and spontaneously.


Today, students who are in the bilingual program participate in the CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) methodology, which means that in addition to learning English, they use it to work on specific content from other subjects such as science, art, citizenship or classic culture.


In Infant, certain preparations for the acquisition of reading in English (especially in the phonetic part) have been reinforced and advanced, and in secondary and high school readjustments have been made to improve other skills such as writing.


In the Baccalaureate cycle, students have the possibility of studying 9 hours of English per week and can even prepare for the exams of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) . It should be noted that 95% of the students in the last graduating class were accepted at the best universities in English-speaking countries.

With the vision of the future that characterizes our Center, we decided to subscribe to the CAM bilingualism project in 2008. Thus, we went  one of the 25 subsidized schools in the Community of Madrid to be part of the Bilingual Schools Network project. All this thanks to our proposal and the excellent level of our teachers who passed the habilitation tests 100%.
