English Language Department

Philosophy

The English language is a tool for life and learning it means acquiring multiple skills on many levels, making it an invaluable qualification for our students’ future. As with every language, apart from learning grammar and vocabulary, students also learn a new way of thinking and perception of the world.

Certification

Studying at our school is, by definition, certification of excellent knowledge of the English language. However, because we know that the acquisition of diplomas is a serious matter for our students’ subsequent professional careers, the teachers of the English Department prepare students for these diplomas when the students are judged to be ready to acquire them.

New Curriculum

At the beginning of their studies at our school, but also at the end of each academic year, each student is placed in an English class according to his/her performance during the school year, always bearing in mind what is best for the progress of each student

Since the 2013-14 school year, we have introduced a new collection of teaching books which we consider to be in line with the philosophy described above. The new books have been selected following a great deal of thought and research by an English Department committee. In the selection process, we have taken into consideration, among other things, the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, which defines the levels of competence on a European level. You can find further information on the Framework at this link: http://www.coe.int/t/dg4/linguistic/Cadre1_en.asp
