Bilingualism

Fomento schools promote the development of multilingual competence. Following the recommendations of the Council of Europe, it is part of a teaching model focused on developing communication skills. The learning of English is done by immersion in Pre-Primary, through the programs and innovative projects developed by Fomento such as Hello Sally or Magic Talk! In Primary and Secondary School, the CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) methodology is used in projects such as ChildTalks!

The mastery of the English language of our students is supported by the Cambridge exams, certificates referenced at the levels indicated by the Council of Europe.

Academic programs

Fomento offers stays of varying length in English-speaking countries, such as Ireland, Canada or the United States. Our students stay in families that welcome them as one more member of the family. They live for weeks or months, at home and at school, in an environment similar to their own and in communicative surroundings, allowing them to continue developing their learning of English. During their stay, pupils will receive the advice of a teacher from Fomento

The program is aimed at girls and boys, ranging from 5º de Primaria (5th Class) to 4º ESO (4th Year), who wish to study at an Irish school.

This program allows girls and boys from 1º ESO (7th grade) to 4º ESO (10th grade) to study at Northridge Preparatory School and The Willows Academy.

This program allows girls from 1º ESO (7th grade) to 4º ESO (10th grade) to study at Montrose School, located in Medfield, Massachusetts
