Subjects in English

"Welcome to your first day at Retamar." These are probably the first words our new students hear when they enter their section and go to their respective classrooms during the first weeks of September.

In recent years, Retamar has implemented a series of changes in its academic project to offer its students a dynamic, international and bilingual experience. Subjects in English at Retamar represent a large part of the academic project that the school offers. From first of Primary to Second of Baccalaureate, all students learn together with a large number of native English-speaking teachers. Students acquire new communication skills by completing assignments, projects, and team presentations in English with the support, advice, and supervision of their respective teachers.

In all English subjects, students work together. By incorporating learning methodologies such as Phonics, CLIL (simultaneous learning through the incorporation of English as a vehicular language to learn about a subject such as Natural Sciences or Social Sciences), Project-based learning (learning based on to the realisation of projects) and Cooperative Work.

Retamar teachers encourage a high level of participation among their students in addition to creating a feeling of unity and support among them.

The interest and enthusiasm that students transmit when communicating with their teachers and classmates both inside and outside the classroom, allows more and more students to choose to participate and shine in external competitions in English, such as the Speech Contest and The International Debate organized by IE University.

The effort on the part of the school and the students is reflected not only in the assignments, projects, presentations and internal exams of the various subjects taught in English, but also in the external exams of Cambridge, the International Baccalaureate (IB) and in the University Entrance Exams.

Thanks to these experiences, both in the subjects taught in English and in the subject of English Language, during Primary, Secondary and Baccalaureate phases, students acquire a level of English that allows them to participate in international exchanges and then choose to study in universities abroad, as we have seen with some of our former students.
