For over 500 years the University of Cambridge has globally contributed to the development of the sciences through investigation and publishing. Following on from such a heritage is not easy.
Cambridge Science, our series for Social and Natural Science, offers expert science content knowledge, combined it with the experience and creativity of teachers who are actively giving language and Science classes in Spain. Teachers who know what works, what is successful in class and what will be successful for you. It is part of the Cambridge Bilingual Programme, together with Life Adventures.
Levels 1, 2, 3 and 5 are already available, with levels 4 and 6 coming out in 2019.
Cambridge Science is a finalist of the 17th British Council ELTons Awards for Innovation in English Language Teaching 2019 in Local Innovation. It has been selected as a finalist by a panel of experts from among 150 international products, publications and services as meeting the stringent criteria for innovation and practical application.
Winners will be announced at the award ceremony in central London on Monday 10 June 2019. Find out more or watch the live webcast at englishagenda.britishcouncil.org/eltons.
Number of Levels
Complete Beginner to Pre Intermediate (Pre A1-B1)
- Specifically written for Spain, Cambridge Science covers the complete LOMCE Natural and Social Science curricula.
- The contents are presented in the format of a scrapbook, closer to the way children learn things out of the classroom. Like a magazine, it includes fun facts and interesting questions to appeal to their natural curiosity.
- Documentary videos introduce the unit content.
- A problem-based methodology: each unit poses a problem-based task which the pupils need to solve by studying the content of the unit.
- Fun and practical experiments and discovery activities aid pupils’ understanding of the main themes and topics. They also encourage and practise collaborative learning.
- Projects give plenty of opportunities for personalisation, creativity and collaborative learning.
- Attitude is everything: specific lessons focus on emotional intelligence (levels 1 and 2).
Where Life meets Science
The Cambridge Bilingual Programme integrates Natural and Social Science with our general English course Life Adventures. These three fully integrated courses mutually support each other. What is learnt in English helps understand the Science content, while at the same time the Science courses reinforce language learning.
