Educational offer

Language school

La Salle Bonanova has a language school which currently offers German, French and Chinese classes to students from 3rd grade of Primary Education to 2nd year of Baccalaureate, and also to groups of parents during the afternoon.

The groups are formed according to the level and the number of registered students. The courses aim to provide students with a general knowledge of the language, at progressive levels, starting from the initiation to the language. They are taught in person by qualified and/or native teachers.

Our intention is for our students to get enough training to become people who are prepared to occupy positions of responsibility in the work world or to access the university course with the certification in languages already recognized.

These courses also offer the possibility of receiving individualized classes if the timetable or the level is not adequate in order to obtain official qualifications, or to work on language reinforcement classes if the student presents any difficulty in the classes or interested in depth in one of the three languages we offer.

Axes that define the language school

Timetable
In general, lessons have a duration of 60 minutes, two days a week and they are taught from 5p.m. Lessons start at 3p.m. for secondary and Baccalaureate students, and they can be taught two hours one day a week.

Lessons are based on speaking, with a good monitoring of the student's learning process, a very fluid communication with the families, small groups and the student's commitment.
