Academic Experience

Key points

Small class sizes ensure that each student receives individual attention from their tutors, providing a learning experience which is unique to their needs. This close proximity between students and teachers fosters close relationships and a supportive environment, which builds confidence amongst the young learners and encourages them to succeed.
 
Teachers challenge students to achieve to the maximum of their potential, and set milestones and goals for each student, with constant evaluation. This sets the pace for each learner to surpass their academic expectations and achieve more than they thought possible.
 
In tandem with English language development, the course piques the intellectual curiosity of the learners by exposing them to a range of authentic sources from different academic subjects, which in turn develops their critical thinking skills as they discuss and analyse them.
 
The mix of nationalities in the classroom and the wide range of materials covered creates an international outlook amongst students, broadening their horizons and exposing them to new ideas, cultures and ways of thinking.

Programme

Academic Subjects Immersion Programme

30 hours of tuition per week

The Academic Subjects Immersion Programme goes beyond language knowledge, fluency and confidence in English and explores a wide range of academic subjects such as History, Geography, Natural sciences and Literature. Students also explore areas of interpersonal skills and inter-cultural awareness as well as developing their learner autonomy.

  • • Academic subject knowledge
    Students develop a greater understanding of subjects that are key for work and life in the 21st century including English Literature, the performing arts, Geography, History, Science, and Politics.


    • English language in use
    Students look at content in English by reading a text or watching a video. They will then analyse its language features, and practise using them in engaging, meaningful spoken or written tasks.


    • Creative project
    Students have the opportunity to develop their ability to think creatively, work creatively and collaboratively with others to share their innovative ideas through different presentation styles such as pecha kucha, video reportage, or a blog.


    • Measuring progress
    Each student keeps a Learner Portfolio to encourage learning skills, self-assessment and reflection. Individual coaching sessions allow students to monitor and improve their
    performance.


    • Cultural awareness & educational field trip
    Students, through an inquiry approach, develop skills for understanding aspects of culture. Students will research a place to visit and, after doing so, they will present their findings and contrast them with their own culture.
