Le multilinguisme, c’est-à-dire l’apprentissage de plus d’une langue étrangère, doit devenir un des éléments central et vital de l’enseignement. Nous en sommes conscients au Lycée Saint Benoît, c’est pourquoi nous proposons un enseignement trilingue de qualité. Pour le citoyen de l’Avenir, le développement du multilinguisme constitue un droit et un devoir civique.
Notre Politique de Valorisation de la langue anglaise s’inscrit dans cette volonté et le Séjour linguistique à Londres est un des aspects de notre politique linguistique. Notre ligne directrice dans la politique d’enseignement des langues est aujourd’hui de former un individu multilingue.
Découvrir Londres tout en participant activement à des cours
Les élèves comprennent le rôle prédominant que l’anglais a acquis dans le monde. Cette dimension linguistique est totalement inscrite dans notre Projet d’établissement.
L’anglais est devenu la langue d’échange d’un grand nombre de pays. Notre politique linguistique répond à cette conscience que nous avons que l’anglais est indispensable à l’épanouissement personnel et professionnel, à la compréhension des autres et à la participation à la vie internationale.
Par ailleurs, l’apprentissage d’une langue étrangère comporte non seulement des aspects pragmatiques et fonctionnels – l’aptitude à comprendre et à parler, à lire et à écrire – mais également des aspects pédagogiques et interculturels qui concourent à la formation de la personnalité de nos élèves.

« I had so much fun on this trip. The six days have passed so quickly. We went to see a bunch of museums and parks. We saw a lot of the culture and history of this city. The weather was really nice as well. The English course we took in the morning helped us practice English so that we could use it during the day. We experienced the daily life and had a chance to use our English skills. We had a chance to express our ideas and opinions in the classes we took. I think that this trip to London was a really good experience for students. This might be the best trip I’ve ever had in my life and I would love to go back to London one day. »
« We arrived in London by plane as you can guess. It was a long trip where we spent more than 3 hours in a plane. When we landed, it was about 9 am and we needed to do a couple of things before starting to visit museums and popular attractions. At first, we visited the hotel where we were going to stay for a week and we left our luggage right there. The hotel had a good location, it was easy to find restaurants and markets and it was really close to several museums in London. That’s why, it wasn’t a big problem for us to look for something to eat. Even though, I didn’t like the traditional dishes that much.
We had English courses during mornings before sightseeing in London. We used the tube stations and we needed to use a weirdly named card which is called Oyster. It has the same purpose as Istanbul card. Actually It was a good experience because we had a chance to compare our metro with the other countries ones.
We visited the British Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum, Science Museum and the National History Museum. In my opinion, Science Museum was the best one because it was really interesting to see some real samples of ancient inventions and learning about future projects such as space related ones. On the other hand, it was a really good opportunity to understand the development of the historical technologies.
We were aware of the climate, but the weather wasn’t annoying us though. So we had a lot of chance to walk around. We saw Tower Bridge, Westminster Abbey, London Eye (and we had been inside), Covent Garden, Buckingom Palace and Big Ben as well. However Big Ben was in restauration. We were a bit unlucky.
It was a good trip, I really appreciated to be there and I want to say thank you to our teachers for their efforts. »
