SABIS® & Unicamp Hold Talk on the Benefits of Bilingual Education

Campinas, Brazil (December 4, 2019): Today, SABIS® and the University of Campinas (Unicamp) launched SABIS® & Unicamp Talks, a new series of seminars on international education held at the SABIS® International School – Campinas Temporary Office located at Av. Engenheiro Carlos Stevenson, 385 Nova Campinas. SABIS®, a global education network that has an active presence in 20 countries on five continents, is expected to open SABIS® International School –Campinas in August 2021, making the world-renowned SABIS® education available to students in Brazil for the first time.

In the first talk of the series, Dr. Rita Ladeia, a distinguished university professor of bilingual education, discussed in her latest book on bilingual education in Brazil. Dr. Ladeia also explored existing teaching methodologies used in international and bilingual schools in Brazil and why the SABIS® methodology seems to be the most suitable education for children in today’s changing world.

The second in the series of SABIS® & Unicamp Talks is expected to be held in February 2020. Guest speaker Dr. Leandro Tessler, a University of Campinas professor, will be discussing the importance of an international education in Brazil. The third and final talk is scheduled for November 2020 during which Dr. Rosana Baeninger, also a University of Campinas professor, will be speaking about the topic of inter-culturalism and contemporary school settings.

When it opens in August 2021, SABIS® International School – Campinas  will offer an international, bilingual education that prepares students for success on both local Brazilian and international examinations paving the way for acceptance to top universities in Brazil and abroad. In preparation for its August 2021 opening, the school will offer a preparatory course in February 2021 in order to make sure that students gain the level of fluency in English required to follow class instruction successfully.  

Even ahead of the opening, parents are already excited about the new school. Here are a few of the things parents are saying:

“I have 2 children, a 7 -year -old boy and a 12- year- old girl. For me, SABIS® is the possibility of providing my children with global education: a full time education with emphasis on bilingualism, emotional intelligence and creativity, which are necessary aspects in the globalized world we live in!” -- Ana Paula de Azevedo, dermatologist.

“I have two children, 8 and 3 years old. We are moving to Shanghai, China, in December because we want to provide high quality and differentiated education to our children. SABIS® has become a reference for us because in 1 year from now we´ll be back in Campinas and we want to continue an international education because in an increasingly globalized universe we know how important it is to our children to have fluency in other languages and also their creative development.” --Aline G. P. Fachini, Administrator.

“I have a 4 year old son. Today I seek the possibility of opening up doors for a great future for him. As we come from a Swiss family we value a school with excellent curriculum, like SABIS®. In Switzerland, graduating from a renowned school and entering to a good college makes it possible to have a nice work place.” --Angèle Berdat, psychologist.

I have two young sons and I am interested in SABIS® International School – Campinas because of its English immersion program, its multicultural setting and its proven international curriculum and methodology. My family and I welcome SABIS® in our region and look forward to its opening in 2021.”    --Fábio Dias, marketing director.
