English as a Foreign Language
Experienced teachers bring lessons of real English communication. Forget set scripts and memorization, our students learn to communicate naturally through discussion, presentation, and writing.
English for International Students
Many international students speak English at school, and their native language at home. Sometimes they need more support with the academic vocabulary and grammar they use in school in order to keep up with their peers
For Younger Children
We integrate movement and engaging activities to keep young children focused and learning. Total Physical Response, or TPR, was created by American Psychologist Dr. James Asher and is based on how people learn their first language. When children acquire their native language, their parents are very physically involved in teaching that language. They demonstrate and instruct, and the child responds. Small children don’t speak at all, but they start with comprehending.
Therefore, we acquire our first language, rather than learn it as we do additional languages. TPR copies this process and creates a neural link between speech and action. This pairs movement and language which is innately associated with effective learning.
For Older Students
We know many of our students are preparing for upper level schools or universities, so we make sure they are confident in their writing abilities. We use leveled writing curriculum to teach students the five steps of the writing process. By building foundational skills for writing, we equip students to communicate through different writing styles and ability levels.
Writing genres taught and practiced include:
Students will have the opportunity to learn and practice different writing genres at four developmental writing levels; beginning, early developing, developing, and fluent. Progression through our leveled courses ensures that our students have the knowledge and tools they need to effectively communicate through written English.
