Since the beginning, at Yago School we have been working on a solid training in language teaching, so that our students finish their schooling with the highest levels in their English and Chinese communication competences. In an increasingly connected and global world, effective mastery of foreign languages becomes imperative and each year our promotions are getting better at using these languages.
This is supported by the results of the English exams from Cambridge University which, without a doubt, provide an added value of competitiveness before starting university studies. This is why all students are obliged to obtain different levels throughout their school life, specifically in Primary 2 “Starters”, Primary 4 “Movers”, Primary 5 Flyers, Primary 6 “PET” (Level B1), Secondary2 “FIRST” (Level B2), and others can be submitted in Secondary4 to “CAE” Advanced, in Bacclaureate1 “BULATS” (Business English) and Baccalaureate2 “Proficiency” of Cambridge or Trinity 12 (Level C2).
At Yago School we are proud to obtain extraordinary results in these exams, which corroborates that bilingualism in our School is real.
During the first weeks of the school year we have given the diplomas to the students who did different exams last year, and where many obtained outstanding results with distinctions.
We also presented the YCT and HSK Chinese diplomas. At Yago School students receive Chinese lessons from Nursery onwards and we introduce many of our students to the different levels of Chinese examinations from the Confucius Institute. Our children got such good results that this institution has issued us a Diploma of Excellence that accredits that Yago is one of the best examining centers of Chinese in Spain.
Finally, Yago School aims to awaken interest and passion for music in all its students.
All the students receive two periods of music weekly at our School. From Infant 5 they learn to read Music in English and they play one of the 20 pianos in our 2 Music classrooms. We present a large number of students to the examinations of the ABRSM (Associated Board of Royal Schools of Music) for which examiners come from London during the school year. The children showed rigor and a lot of constancy throughout the course, obtaining most of them, outstanding marks.
Congratulations to everyone!
