Meet Our Bilingual School in Alicante
Newton College is a bilingual school in Alicante with an international program that allows our students to learn languages through immersive activities.
The first academic years are important to lay a foundation of knowledge that will be vital for their future, in the case of languages, during this stage a child learns the grammatical structures and much of the vocabulary they will use throughout their lives, if they develop their communication skills in English, they will learn a second language in the same way as their mother tongue.
At Newton College we attach fundamental importance to language learning, that is why our students are taught through bilingual programs, which are complemented with the learning of a third language during the secondary school stage.
What is a bilingual school?
A bilingual school is one that develops an educational method with two vehicular languages. In the case of Newton College, we not only develop a bilingual curriculum, but we also implement international programs in collaboration with schools around the world, thanks to our collaboration with the International Schools Partnership.
Bilingual education at our school begins in the first years of kindergarten and ends in high school, with English focused on the vocabulary necessary for later university education and job development.
What does a bilingual school consist of?
A bilingual school must teach between 30% and 50% of its classes in English, in addition, the school must include in its teaching staff native teachers who have conversations in English with the students.
At Newton College we implement a teaching model that builds on the foundations of bilingualism, enhancing its advantages through international programs that include immersive experiences. Students must acquire grammatical and vocabulary knowledge in the classroom, but it is very important that they put their communication skills into practice in real situations in which they are forced to use the language.
The results of our students are the best demonstration of the success of our bilingual educational programs. Our bilingual school in Elche has become one of the main educational references in our environment, precisely due to the results that, year after year, our students obtain in both national and international university entrance exams.
Why is it important to enroll your children in a Bilingual School?
The importance of a bilingual program has implications for both their present and their future. Learning several languages has a decisive impact on their cognitive development, improving their learning skills in other subjects. For their future, language skills are already a basic job skill, in an increasingly global world, English and Spanish are two languages that will be of vital importance in the labor market of the future.
Another advantage of learning languages from an early age is that students perceive the particularities of other cultures. It is important for students to know that they live in a global environment, where respect for other cultures is a basic value, and language is the best way to learn about other points of view.
At Newton College we develop a global idea based on language learning, but which tries to go beyond the educational guidelines.
