Nowadays, bilingual project is a major educational and cultural advantage as it allows children to improve their communication skills. Especially at a young age, bilingual education enables students to extend their comprehension, interpretation and translation abilities. It is an opportunity for personal and socio-cultural enrichment for each child. It is an important step in becoming citizens of a community, a nation, of Europe and the world. Starting in the school year 2014/2015, Serena school launched, on an experimental basis, bilingual education for pre-school and primary school. This initiative expresses the need to understand two different cultures, by combining them, in order to ensure an excellent education. Children should be able to interact in two languages, making them aware that the English Language allows them to "communicate with the world”.
Quality is ensured by qualified native speakers, using the OPOL method (One Person One Language) focusing on speaking and communicating in English, oral comprehension, and listening. English labs and skype calls to American and English schools are also organized. Our institute is also an official Cambridge University preparation center and students can choose to take Cambridge Esol examinations. Cambridge University Esol exams offer the widest range of certificates for those who study English as a foreign language. (http://www.cambridgeesol.it/esami).
