Foreing Languages Department

   

The Foreign Language Department integrates the study of a given language history, cultural legacy and behavior of native speakers. Language courses are open to all students with the desired interest in language and culture of native speakers. Language teachers encourage their students to be creative and to apply what they have learned in class. The Foreign Language Department stands out for an impressive variety of teacher-directed activities which serve to enhance student-learning and interest in becoming acquainted with cultural patterns and behavioral trends of native speakers. The Department is compatible with the principles highlighted in the school’s philosophy and objectives. Instruction is based on humanistic, multidisciplinary, and foremost, a pragmatic approach. Foreign Languages are taught primarily to communicate and promote human understanding. Values such as respect and tolerance are implicitly taught through analysis and understanding cultural differences. The use of technological resources has improved considerably in the last years. Every other year, the Foreign Languages Department sponsors the European Soirée, where the different classes present an artistic production which is awaited by parents, teachers, and students in our school community with great enthusiasm.

 

Activities:The European Soirée takes place every two years, integrating new technologies such as blogs, Facebook, Laboratories, Noche de Lenguas Extranjeras.
