Bilingual Education

LANGUAGES

One of the objectives stated in Arenas School Community’s educational offering regarding languages is for students to acquire a communicative proficiency in English and German. For this reason, bilingual education is provided to students from the first stage of kindergarten to their last year of training (Baccalaureate). We offer an active and participative training that develops students’ English and German writing and speaking skills.

Our Transition Classroom is available for teaching Spanish to foreign students with no Spanish skills.

ENGLISH

English language training at Arenas School Community is backed by 30 years of teaching experience and a qualified and expert team of teachers. We teach English from Early Childhood to Baccalaureate. As a result, our students progress and obtain great marks at Cambridge University English Qualifications.

According to the results offered by Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC) regarding university entrance exams (EBAU), in the last few years our schools have consolidated at the top in English language training in the Province of Las Palmas (118 schools in total), even overcoming the so-called “British” schools.

GERMAN

We teach German at our schools from Early Childhood Education to Baccalaureate thanks to a native, highly-qualified team of teachers. Every year, some of our students take and pass Goethe Institut German Examinations.

Also, our Secondary students benefit from a linguistic immersion program—a school trip to Germany—which helps them to improve their language skills.

Learning English and German at Arenas School Community means to be trained in excellence and to have at your disposal the necessary tools and language skills to be capable of taking university training in United Kingdom or other foreign countries.

The excellent results obtained at Cambridge English Qualifications and Goethe-Institut German Examinations for A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2 levels under the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) justify our training in English and German. We prepare students for taking these exams.

We also offer the possibility of taking DELE Spanish Diplomas from Instituto Cervantes, for which we also are an exam center.
