International Foundation Academic Year Programme
We are pleased to announce there are a few places available on our confirmed course for the Academic Year 2017 -2018. This year-long English course is designed for Young Learners between the ages of 6 – 11. The course prepares students for entry into mainstream education and aims to develop students’ academic English language proficiency, enabling smooth transition and entry into local schools. Regular assessments at the start, mid and end points of the course enable us to assess suitability for entry into Primary School.
Our Foundation Course lasts for one academic year (three school terms) and aims to bridge the gap in terms of language tuition for students moving to Malta who wish to enrol in a mainstream school.
Students learn English in small groups with qualified, caring educators who support learners in terms of direct instruction in the English language, and also teach key skills such as English for Content.
Our approach to language learning is task-based, communicative and student led.
Students normally attend for one full academic year, however the programme allows for flexible enrolment.
Key features of the Foundation Programme include;
Developing research skills, cooperative learning and other strategies used in mainstream local classrooms.
Development of Core English skills including vocabulary, speaking, listening, reading and writing
Small classrooms with direct instruction
Timetabled curriculum including school subjects – English, Science, Information Technology, Mathematics, Art, Geography
Developing research skills, cooperative learning and other strategies used in mainstream local classrooms
