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:
LANGUAGES AND IDIOMS THAT WE TEACH AT SIL SCHOOL
LINGUISTICS TRAINING AND LANGUAGES THAT WE TEACH
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.
