English

Terranova’s graduates are well known for their excellent English level. After 12th great, that level is C1, considered enough to study or to work in an English speaking country.

Since their first years at school, we measure the advance of our students towards that goal, through international standard tests such as TOEFL Primary and TOEFL Junior.

The following table shows the academic development of English from preschool to 12 th grade.
