Abstract


La comparación de los resultados de rendimiento en Lengua Inglesa –evaluado mediante pruebas externas– de los estudiantes que forman parte de los programas bilingües de enseñanza de la Comunidad de Madrid pone de manifiesto que el rendimiento académico en inglés al final de la Educación Primaria de los alumnos escolarizados en centros bilingües con el modelo propio de la Comunidad de Madrid (CM) es significativamente superior al de los estudiantes que están escolarizados con el modelo del convenio entre el Ministerio de Educación y el British Council (MEC-BC). Esta competencia en Lengua Inglesa es mejor, como promedio, en los centros del modelo propio de la Comunidad de Madrid, a pesar de que los alumnos inicien su aprendizaje de inglés a los 6 años, en contraposición con el promedio de rendimiento en Lengua Inglesa en los centros del modelo MEC-BC, que lo inician en la Educación Infantil, a los 3 años.

 

The aim of this study is to compare the results obtained in the English language by the students who take part in two bilingual programs that are implemented in Madrid, Spain. Those results, evaluated by means of external texts, portray that the academic performance in English at the end of Primary Education of those students in bilingual schools that follow the model of the Regional Government of Madrid (CM), is significantly superior to that of the students who follow the model agreed between the Ministry of Education and the British Council (MEC-BC). Although the students start learning English at the age of 6 in the schools with the Regional Government of Madrid model, the competence in the English language is better, on average, to that of the schools with the MEC-BC model, that start in Pre-K education, at the age of 3.
