Educational offer adapted to the needs of each stage of education

At Palacio de Granda we attach great importance to language learning, the learning process begins in the early stages of education and ends in pre-university courses. 


In the infant stage, pupils have their first contact with English through games, songs and interactive activities. They learn basic vocabulary related to colours, numbers and everyday objects, as well as simple grammatical structures. Early immersion fosters natural pronunciation and the ability to understand and follow simple instructions in English.


During primary school, reading, writing, and speaking in English are deepened. Students expand their vocabulary and improve their reading comprehension through adapted stories and texts. More complex grammatical concepts are introduced, and oral communication is promoted through presentations and simple dialogues.


In Secondary, the focus is on consolidating grammar, enriching vocabulary and developing analytical skills through literature. Students hone their writing and argumentation skills, conduct literary analysis, and participate in debates to improve their fluency and confidence in speaking.


In the Baccalaureate, students reach an advanced level of proficiency in English. They focus on literary criticism, academic essays and preparation for official exams. The ability to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing, is refined through the study of complex texts and the production of research papers, preparing them for higher education and professional environments.
