ELC teachers work in collaboration with the class teachers and prepare student evaluation reports with respect to their performance in English language. They prepare resources based on the language needs of students and incorporate appropriate content in their lessons. They provide a variety of classes, focusing on Effective Oral and Written Communication as well as English for Academic and Professional Development. Classroom activities involve visual, auditory and most importantly kinesthetic activities. Units are also incorporated from their IB curriculum to make them familiar with their classroom topics.
The objectives of the ELC are as follows:
1. To enhance students' general proficiency in English to a level appropriate for further study;
2. To provide practical situations as far as possible for students to develop their proficiency in all four language skills in an all-round manner.
Given this world-class level of support, it is expected that students who have little or no prior knowledge of English will take about a year and two to reach to a good communicative level in all aspects of the language.
Students with a good communicative level of English will take a further two to three years in order to achieve a good academic command of the language equivalent to a native English speaker. The fact that all students are different, their needs also vary. Therefore, in the ELC they get special attention and care to advance in the areas they are lagging behind.
ELC is the backbone of NBHIS International School that targets to develop efficient English skills in Speakers of other Languages.
