Students at IES Luis Vives Vocational Training School are prepared
in the acquisition and technical use of French and English languages
for practical work situations depending on their speciality. Thus, the
Language Department consists of three English teachers, one
French teacher and English language assistants who help students
improve their oral skills.
The main objective is to give a general training of the foreign
language to ensure minimal communication skills for the job post.
However, our students also learn and study specific language for
real life and specific situations related to the diverse environments
taught in our school.
Extra language support..
Students at IES Luis Vives learn how to
successfully compose a Curriculum Vitae and a
covering letter in English. These tasks are
personalised and adapted for the chosen job
position, after having analysed a series of offers
of employment in the Anglo-Saxon language.
Job interviews in the foreign language are also
carried out to match a wide variety of situations
in the work environment that every English
student has to handle. This task helps students prepare for their
nearest future and gain confidence in their communicative skills to
understand and express themselves orally in a formal register, as in
a job interview.
Familiarizing students with typical situations of a work environment
is but one of the objectives of the Languages Department: making
or answering telephone calls, attending work meetings, going on
business trips, preparing meetings, writing reports, reading and
answering e-mails, providing customers with an adequate service
and handling complains politely and correctly, among many other
Students are faced with a great amount of texts, audios, videos and
real situations with the language assistant. The aim is that they can
achieve an acceptable level of fluency in the foreign language and
that they can acquire a valuable experience similar to the situations
they will find in the real world. Specific lexicon from each
professional family is dealt with to prepare students to interpret
manuals and specific documents and reports with ease. The
knowledge of technical vocabulary helps students elaborate their
own written compositions and oral discourses to control their oral
and written communicative skills.
Lastly, we offer students the possibility to express themselves in
English on our blog, in addition to class activities:
