Receiving a bilingual education helps students become more receptive to other cultures and better understand the world around them"  

curso reading comprehension english classroom

Bilingual education in schools has become increasingly popular, which has led to an increase in the demand for specific training for language teaching. Although progress has been made in this regard in recent years with the creation of specific programs aimed at meeting this growing demand, efforts must continue to be made to improve the educational system in a committed and responsible manner, addressing the needs and developing an innovative, ambitious and effective teaching model. 

In educational terms, bilingualism provides students with a number of advantages. Bilingual students are able to acquire a very high level of the language, sometimes to a native level, which greatly benefits them in their future careers. Likewise, adolescents who receive this type of education find it easier to pick up different languages, acquire a more complex vocabulary, are able to communicate fluently and tend to be more receptive to other cultures. 

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.
