Educational offerings at our Colegio Internacional Gijón at all levels

The language learning process in each of the educational stages is as follows. 

Infant Education

At this stage, English language learning focuses on natural exposure to the language through games, songs, etc. Children begin to become familiar with basic sounds and words, promoting a fun and stimulating environment that awakens their interest and curiosity for the language.

Primary Education

During primary education, more structured English language teaching is introduced. Pupils learn a wider vocabulary, basic grammatical structures and begin to practise simple reading and writing skills, complemented by oral activities to build fluency and confidence.

Secondary Education

The focus is on developing more advanced language skills. Students engage in more complex conversations, study grammar in depth and read academic texts. Critical thinking and self-expression in English is encouraged, preparing students for real-life communication situations.


In the Bachillerato, English language learning is geared towards academic and professional preparation. Students hone their ability to debate, present and write essays. Emphasis is placed on independent use of the language and the ability to deal with complex and specialised subjects, preparing students for higher education or the workplace.

International focus and bilingualism at Palacio de Granda
