English Language Support

EAL (English as an Additional Language) is a fundamental part of every lesson. The individual English language needs of each student are taken into account by their teacher and lessons are planned accordingly.

There are a range of methods employed by the teachers to help support the development of the students’ English language. The specifics of the support will depend very much on the cohort in question. For example ITY have to read works of fiction and produce book reports whereas A-level students will have to learn subject-specific terminology, in context, and take part in frequent vocabulary tests.

We also empower the students to be self directing in improving their English language skills.  Students are trained to use dictionaries effectively and efficiently in order to support their own learning.
