EAL (ENGLISH AS AN ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE)
The EAL program addresses the needs of students for whom English is a second or additional language. The EAL department aims to accelerate the acquisition of English, so that our non native speakers can take full advantage of not only the academic curriculum, but also their social environment.
Throughout this program we strive to honor the differences in cultures and learning styles of our EAL students, a key asset in our international school, while providing them with the tools necessary to become independent learners.
Through their acquisition of an additional language we hope the EAL students will be able to share and communicate an understanding of, and appreciation for, different cultures and philosophies and develop the skills to become responsible, contributing citizens of the global community.
Students in the ISN EAL program benefit from small group instruction in English from Grade 1 to 8.
