The Serena Andersen School is a Bilingual school with a strong International character. The Serena Andersen Institute derives its internationality from an intercultural approach.
The English language plays a central role – integrative with respect to the Italian language – in the path of our students. In fact, in the deep conviction that bilingual education, currently, represents a huge educational and cultural advantage in a social context that requires more and more linguistic skills, an ever greater openness of mind and a constant encounter between cultures, from the 2014/2015 school year The Serena Andersen Institute proposes a ‘Bilingual’ education for the Infant and Primary classes. The goal is to ensure that the child is able to interact in two languages, in the prospect of becoming a citizen of the world.
It is an ‘innovative bilingualism’, different from that traditionally proposed: the English language is included in teaching activities not as a replacement or overlap, but as an extension and integration of linguistic knowledge. The quality of teaching is guaranteed by qualified native teachers. There are also specific workshops in English using appropriate teaching aids.
