In 2019 Escola Sagrada Familia initiated its Bilingual Program for all of the students from 1st grade to High School. The program is roughly based on international criteria of bilingual education placing it, with six lessons of English per week at the top of comparative programs in the immediate region.
The curriculum has been designed in partnership with Cambridge and has a holistic view of learning English. It constantly incorporates all aspects of English language learning INPUT skills starting with Reading and Listening and ending with the OUTPUT skills of Writing and Speaking, although there is a somewhat greater focus on the listening skills so lessons are done mostly in English and the students are expected to effectively use English in class.
Despite the quarantine caused by the Covid-19 pandemic classes have continued online at the same rhythm.
We expect no deficit in 2021 and will start the year with diligence and commitment.
