From the first day At SAM, we encourage students´ aquisition of reading and writing skills in the English language. In preschool, our native english teachers adopt an active and multisensorial approach to helping the pupils achieve these skills. Throughout the childhood and primary school periods, we implement the phonic program called ´Jolly Phonics ´, followed by Jolly Grammar, first to enhance and then to consolidate reading, writing and pronounciation.
We are a Cambridge Centre, which means that children can pass the internationally recognized official Cambridge exams at our school (KET, PET, FCE, CAE, CPE).
Taking into account that there are over 350 million native speakers of the English language around the world, our primary objective is to help our pupils acquire a high degree of competence in the English language so that they will be better equipped for the future challenges they may encounter.
Nowadays, it is a neccessity for individuals to be able to communicate in a variety of languages. At our centre, one of the languages we have chosen to teach is that of German, which is one of the most important in the world.
From the third year of primary school onwards, students can choose to learn this language, which is taught by means of communicative activities and interactive games. From a young age, the aim will be to develop the pupils´ four main skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) so that they will be prepared to take the official exams of the Goethe Institut. It must be said that the ulitmate objective is for students to pass the B2 level German exam by the time they have finished Bachillerato.
Moreover, we also provide the possibility for students to go to Germany as exchange students, where they will have more contact with the foreign language in question.
Over 220 million individuals speak French around the world, including countries such as Canada, Switzerland and Belgium. Moreover, it is also the language used to communicate and work in the institutions of the European Union. Thus, it is also an important language.
At SAM, French, just like German, is studied from the third year of primary school and we prepare our pupils for the official DELF and DALF exams, which are the only official language certificates that are awarded by the French Ministry of National Education.
These certificates will enable students to prove their level of comeptence in the French language, which could be of great use for a wide variety of reasons (profesional, academic).
