Teacher in Charge: Mrs E. Gillyon
This program is a new initiative, comprising all six lines in the timetable, which aims at providing total English language immersion and support for students who come into the college with little or no English. The program is divided into two sections: Speaking and Listening and Reading and Writing.
Students will be placed in these programs for some or all of their timetables, depending on their individual needs, and will gradually transition out to other subjects as they acquire the level of English needed to cope with the rest of the curriculum.
The Reading and Writing program uses a beginner student workbook which will allow students to work at their own pace in acquiring new vocabulary and understanding of English grammar and sentence structure. Speaking and Listening lessons will cover essential language and classroom related skills first, before progressing to subject-specific language which should prepare students to participate in other learning areas. These lessons will complement the content being covered in Reading and Writing.
