Tim Bowring and Lee Merrick are our English teachers for the oral English classes. In Turó we’ve got two native speakers of English whose job focuses on improving all our students’ speaking skills.
All our students in Turó, from 1st Primary to 2nd Batxillerat, have got oral English class. The speaking groups are relative small (4 – 5 boys). In the speaking classes, Tim and Lee motivate our students and teach them practical oral skills which will improve their speaking ability and their active participation in the class as well. In addition, these oral classes help our students practice for the Cambridge and Oxford exams.
More than 100 Turó students, who held the Cambridge ESOL Exams last May, were awarded with their certificates: Starters, Movers, Flyers, KET, PET, FCE and CAE.
Since 2011 Turó is a Cambridge Preparation Centre. Students from all ages come to Turó in May and early June to hold these exams
From the very beginning Cambridge exams are a great way to help young students build on their language skills and make further progress in English.
Cambridge English exams are accepted by over 13,500 universities, employers and governments around the world. These exams can open doors to higher education, improve employment opportunities, and because they are globally recognised, can increase learners’ choices for study or work.
