English as an Additional Language (EAL)

English as a second language is accepted by universities and employers as proof of ability to understand and communicate in English. It is aimed at students whose first language is not English, but is used  as a Lingua Franca or language of study. In Lancers, successful English as a second language is for students to have better educational or employment prospects and gain lifelong skills, which include:

·      Better communicative ability in English

·      Improved ability to understand a range of social registers and styles

·      A greater awareness of the nature of language and language learning skills

·      A greater international perspective

·      A sound foundation for progression to employment or further studies.

·      Promote students personal development

The syllabus of the school assesses the students ability to use English as a medium of practical communication, and is designed for students for whom English is not a first language/mother tongue.

They have the ability to identify the important points or themes within an extended piece of writing. They are able to draw conclusions from and see relations within an extended text. They are able to carry out longer writing tasks on a wider range of topics in response to a written stimulus. They are able to identify the important points or themes of the material they hear, including attitudes. They are aware of the major variations in register and can draw conclusions and identify the relationships between ideas within the material they hear. They are able to demonstrate a greater flexibility in dealing with new, topical ideas. They have a sense of audience.

Our students show a sustained ability to maintain a conversation, with proper pronunciation and intonation. They can understand and communicate arguments, ideas and information at a straightforward level.
