RBIS English Support Programme
True to the nature of an International School working with the English National Curriculum, the language of teaching in RBIS classrooms is English
All of the teachers at RBIS are professionally qualified and experienced specialists with a deep knowledge of the subject they teach and understanding of the students they work with. The students at RBIS have the strong advantage of being taught in small class groupings. In lessons that are interactive, stimulating and motivating, the teachers provide students with the individual attention they need to achieve their academic and personal development goals.
English as an Additional Language (EAL)
At RBIS, everyone is welcome. All non native speaking English students will take our English language placement test, new students who need language support will be invited to join our specialist EAL programme. The term English as an Additional Language (EAL) is the way we refer to the use or study of English language by non-native speakers in an English-speaking environment.
If students are close to CEFR B1, they will be able to attend all subjects in English, with some English language support. A language support teacher, who works closely with subject teachers, will help EAL students in the classroom and through language sessions.
English Language Centre (ELC)
If students are 2 levels lower than B1, they will need more English language support, and will benefit from joining our English Language Centre. In this programme, students attend some subjects, so that they can make friends and take part in all school activities. Additionally, they will have more English language lessons to enable them to participate fully in all subjects. Students’ progress is monitored closely, and as they get closer to CEFR B1, they will gradually be able to attend more subjects from the RBIS international programme, until language support is no longer needed and students are fully integrated into the mainstream programme. When students are ready to move up one level, they will be invited to take a Cambridge Young Learner test and will receive an official certificate to celebrate their hard work and encourage them to stay motivated. As their progress is assessed regularly, students will receive detailed feedback and action points to work on, which will give them a clear sense of direction and maximize their progress
Which one is for me ?
RBIS uses the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) to measure a student’s language levels.
