    Taking school as a meaning for ciclo, would “un ciclo medio” be accurately translated as “an average school”?

    Many thanks.

    Ciclo medio es enseñanza media, liceo: secondary school.

    ciclo 5. m. Cada uno de los bloques de cursos en que se divide un plan de estudios. (DRAE)

    Are you sure that CICLO = SCHOOL??

    It doesn't make sense for me. What I understant as Ciclo Medio is a kind of education. When you finish Compulsary Secondary Education you can choose to study Bachillerato (if you want to go to the university later) or to study a Ciclo Medio, which is a more practical and specific education and at the end of the 2-courses you become a technician, i.e. in Electronics, Kindergarden teacher, registered nurse....

    I don't know if this applies to your context...

    Thanks Leivinkas, this does indeed apply to my context; how would you translate thus "ciclo medio"?
  5. leivincas Senior Member

    (By the way, Ciclo Medio is the short form of "Ciclo Formativo de Grado Medio")

    I'm not pretty sure about a good translation, but here you have some guesses:

    - Medium grade formative course (in...)
    - Medium grade of Vocational Training (in...)
