SEK LOS VALLES IN COOPERATION WITH CAMBRIDGE



...


Having a roadmap to take along with learning a foreign language is an excellent idea, that’s why our school has signed an agreement with the worldwide organization International House, a school focusing on General English and Exam preparation for Cambridge Assessments.


Being aware about how proficient our learners are on the basis of international action-based descriptors and standardized marks is a must nowadays, because the international certificates granted by Cambridge guarantee the mastering of the linguistic skills objectively evaluated and recognized around the world.  Then, parents and students will know for sure how well students are developing their language skills and what to do to strengthen themselves in a specific field.


Learning a language is a complex task since it implies the development of both mental and linguistic capabilities allowing learners evolve from being a basic user, to become an independent user, and finally a proficient user. This scaffolding process includes overall scales aimed to assess oral and written production, and reading and listening comprehension, but also narrow scales to assess the ability to address audiences, to deliver a speech, and to write for an intended purpose. 
 
We are so optimistic that this initiative will encourage the entire school community towards embracing the English language as its favorite communicative tool with a high level of performance!
