Celebrating World English Language Day

A Glimpse into Our Innovative Educational Approach

We dive into a fascinating conversation we had on the “Hoy por hoy, Gijón” program on Cadena SER to commemorate World English Language Day. On this special occasion, our Headteacher, Zöe Roberts, provided us with a unique insight into bilingual education and the essence of our school.

Zöe explains how The English School Of Asturias integrates the English language across all areas of the curriculum, providing students with a comprehensive and multidimensional education. From the English Curriculum in the Early Years and Primary stages to the bilingual International Baccalaureate, the school offers a dynamic learning environment where reflection, collaboration, and critical thinking are fostered.

A key point of the conversation was the importance of going beyond mere language proficiency, focusing on developing practical and emotional skills that prepare students for the ever-changing world of work and social dynamics. Our Headteacher emphasized the need to teach students to think critically, communicate effectively, and adapt to diverse cultural contexts.

Additionally, Zöe shared how The English School Of Asturias recently joined the prestigious English educational group, Dukes Education, highlighting the school’s commitment to educational excellence and personalized learning.

An enlightening insight into the crucial role that international education plays in the holistic development of students in an increasingly interconnected world. From practical focus to cultural immersion, The English School Of Asturias offers a model of educational excellence that prepares its students for a constantly evolving world.
