In a progressively interconnected and globalized world it is crucial for people to possess the ability to communicate effectively with one another, and the important role of English in facilitating this communication cannot be overemphasized. For that reason, it is vital to gain proficiency in one of the most widely spoken languages on our planet, and the most widely used lingua franca: English.

Individuals who can communicate effectively in a second language have a greater appreciation of different cultures, are more employable, and have stronger interpersonal skills which are crucial when working with professionals from different nationalities.

At Bradford School, we are aware of the relevance of the English language in our current time. For that reason, our main objective is to help our students develop the skills needed to communicate confidently and effectively in English. To accomplish this goal, we promote the use of English during all our lessons, by providing an “English zone” and encouraging the use of the language.

As a department, we also plan activities, both inside and outside the classroom, which allows us to make the most of opportunities that promote the use of the English language. Additionally, once our students reach the Senior School, they are prepared to take the Cambridge English First Certificate in English (FCE) exam and to complete the IB Diploma Program studying English as a second language. Although there are differences between the preparation programs that are used for the FCE and IB exams, both programs help students to improve their use of the English language as well as raising their awareness of the cultural and linguistic diversity that exists around the world, and the intricate role that a second language plays in fostering intercultural understanding. The aforementioned activities, along with the commitment of the strong team of qualified, experienced teachers who make up the English department, allow us to equip our students with the necessary skills needed to take an active role in today’s interconnected and globalized world.
