San Pedro Salesian School is a bilingual school for the Kindergarten and Primary sections. Within a period of four years, this bilingual project will expand to the rest of the sections, namely secondary education, post-secondary education (6th Form-A-levels) and Vocational Training. We have a wide experience both in the arrangement of internships abroad and in student exchange programs for secondary and post-secondary school. This initiative towards bringing Europe closer would be incomplete without the training of our teaching team. And it does not only involve training in terms of language, but also in terms of methodology and culture. It is for this reason that we wanted our teachers were formed in CLIL methodology, providing them with tools to develop classroom work system increasingly similar to that of any European country.
