All our pupils go out from Sil School with really high linguistics skills

If Colegio Sil in Barcelona wants to sell its foreign language provision to any but the stupid it might want to consider employing people with relevant skills. “Could do better” doesn’t begin to describe this:



Our school develops a trilingüal metodology in castellano, catalan and english.

Our linguistic planning from “TRINITY COLLEGE”, has as primary aim that all the alumni obtain a fluent oral command, equivalent at FIRST CERTIFICATE degree, therefore the teaching of this language, is carried out since the first years of age, with specialized teaching staff, with extensive time of reglated teaching, and further application of this language in different matters and activities.

The exams, validated by the Oxford University are carried out in our own school.

The certifiyng we deliver once the exams are overcome, are fully recognized by the E.U..

Or school offers the possibility of learning French as a second language at secondary obligatory education (ESO) and High School.

All our pupils go out from Sil School with really high linguistics skills.

(Thanks, Mr O!)

Föcked Translation (413): I posted to a light-hearted blog called Fucked Translation over on Blogger from 2007 to 2016, when I was often in Barcelona. Its original subtitle was "What happens when Spanish institutions and businesses give translation contracts to relatives or to some guy in a bar who once went to London and only charges 0.05€/word." I never actually did much Spanish-English translation (most of my work is from Dutch, French and German) but I was intrigued and amused by the hubristic Spanish belief, then common, that nepotism and quality went hand in hand, and by the nemeses that inevitably followed.

  1. I love the umlaut on the u of trilingual. Nice sophisticated touch! I'm sure if foxed a few prospective parents.

  2. Man, one's got to read the whole English website of Silly College to get an idea of how obnoxiously incompetent they really are.

    And still, they're just symptomatic.

  3. Sounds more like Silly School. My worries are that parents have to know English to see behind the façade.

    Actually, this is how most of the country works nowadays.
