Bilingualism

Bilingualism is a central value amongst the main Avenor College student characteristics. The term “bilingualism” refers to individuals or groups who routinely use two or more languages for communication in various contexts. At Avenor College, we define “bilingual education” to refer to the use of two languages - Romanian and English - as mediums of instruction for a series of non-language subjects.

With intensive English lessons, extracurricular clubs in English and a number of other subjects in the timetable being delivered in English, our students acquire the skills necessary to continue their studies in the medium of English in the future, should they wish to do so.

Avenor College students achieve remarkable success in Cambridge English Language Assessment exams, confirming the value of the English language integration in our curriculum. We are proud to celebrate 100% examination success in:

    • First Certificate in English (FCE)
    • Preliminary English Test (PET)
    • Key English Test (KET)
    • Young Learners Flyers (YLE Flyers)
    • Young Learners Movers (YLE Movers)
    • Young Learners Starters (YLE Starters)

    Elements of the Cambridge curriculum and best-practice from the UK can be found in both the content and delivery of our lessons.

    Throughout the school, in both the Romanian and English curriculum our teachers adapt the educational principles and methods of the Cambridge International and UK systems in order to provide a stimulating, flexible learning environment in which each unique child is valued.

    All children are taught the English language by specialist English teachers and have at least one lesson per week with a native speaker. Further creative application of the English language is developed in Science, Art, Drama, Music, and Sports lessons, and in a wide range of co-curricular clubs.
