Foreign languages: vehicle of knowledge and key to sucess

         Language knowledge has become one of the most important keys in order to get personal and professional success in the future. Most of our students will be faced with the necessity of mastering a language different from their mother tongue. Secondary education will, therefore, have to offer them the means to improve their language competence.
         Being certain about this, our institution sees in this Comenius project a wonderful opportunity to study and work on the possibility of a bilingual programme that could be gradually implemented in our school in the next two years. We also count on the support of our regional educational authorities. They have strongly recommended us to go on with this initiative.

     Three different schools participate in this project:

  • IIS EINSTEIN - ALBERGHIERO DE LORETO (ITALY) - project’s institution coordinator

  • RIPLEY ST THOMAS CHURCH OF ENGLAND (AIDED) HIGH SCHOOL DE LANCASTER (ENGLAND)

  • IES DOÑA JIMENA OF GIJÓN-ASTURIAS (SPAIN)    

The duration of the project will be of 36 months, more or less.
English Department and other two teachers (Maths and Natural Sciences) are involved in this project
