English Department

Anne M. Dye


In our modern world it is increasingly important to have a second language. English, as the language of international communication, is essential to be able to participate in academic, cultural, social and commercial activities in a global society made up of such different nations and cultures.

Since St. George’s School is a bilingual school for Colombian students, and respecting the importance of the teaching-learning process, both Spanish and English are included in the classroom from an early age. The English program begins in Prekinder and continues throughout a student’s school life.

Specifically, starting in the 2013-2014 academic year, the school is implementing the CIE Primary programme (Cambridge International Examinations) for grades Transition through Grade 5. This curriculum will bring even higher standards and results to our programme, and our students.

Finally, no matter what interests and personal, academic and professional goals our students might have, the competent use of English will always bring them great value in their lives.
