Teachers and psychologists, experts in teaching languages, believe that the best way to stimulate learning English is not to subject the student to formalized and linear learning -for example, with rote learning- but to encourage imagination and learning through sensory exploration in order to be able to understand and interpret what surrounds us. This allows the brain to work and learn a second language in the most natural way possible, in the same way that we learned our mother tongue. With this high-level program, the teaching professional will specialize in Listening Comprehension in an English Classroom under the guidance of professionals with extensive experience in the field. 

Bilingual education has gained ground in recent years. In the teaching field, methodological trends and approaches not only require an adaptation in the way a second language is taught in the classroom, but also a new approach. New models of bilingual education offer advantages and challenges to both teachers and students. Advantages that will be developed throughout this high-level specialization, by professionals with extensive experience in the sector.

Foreign language teachers play an important role in bilingual programs, because the language they teach is now useful in other subjects or professional modules within the syllabus. A unique opportunity for professionals who wish to acquire the latest teaching methods and strategies in bilingual education and would like to incorporate them into their daily professional practice.
