Bilingual Education

At Colegio Británico we are convinced that the command of the English language is essential for our students.

Our Pre-School and Kindergarten students work in 100% bilingual surroundings, in an environment of total immersion in both language and culture. We apply practices that develop oral production through teaching techniques such as Total Physical Response, Communicative Language Teaching, TBL Collaborative and PPP Approach.

In Primary English classes are taught half of the day. The subjects imparted in English are: science, social studies, grammar, phonics, composition, vocabulary and spelling, which are implicit in the readings and written exercises.

We prepare students for the Cambridge certificate per grade level: Starters, Movers and Flyers.

In Secondary, we have two levels of English teaching: intermediate and advanced. As part of the program, students participate in the international academic competition BEO (British English Olympics) based in London, England, constantly obtaining first places worldwide. We also prepare students for the Cambridge Certificate.

Lastly, in High School, we prepare students for the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) one of the most recognized exams worldwide for English proficiency.
