Whether teaching native or non-native speakers, our overarching goal is to enable each student to develop their knowledge of and skills in the English language and to encourage a lifelong enjoyment of reading, as well as the confident use of the language on a daily basis. Through the skills of analysing literary and non-literary texts our students become familiar with the use of English in wide-ranging contexts and acquire a solid grounding in academic english and the ability to produce well-crafted written texts for a variety of purposes and audiences.
We offer comprehensive English support to all our non-native speakers, assessing their needs when they join the school and supporting them throughout their years at ECP. All subjects taught in English contain an element of language teaching, as vocabulary is introduced, definitions explained, and the usage of terminology put into context. Out students learn to use English with subtlety, accuracy and humour, as well as technical proficiency.
