English Classes

Set in our Georgian building overlooking the Atlantic ocean.  The English classes run for 3 hours every morning/afternoon depending on the level of the students.  We use Project Based Learning with our junior students.  The students work on a project that engages them in solving a real-world problem or answering a complex question while aimed at their level in English. They demonstrate their knowledge and skills by creating a public product or presentation for a real audience.  As a result, students develop deep content knowledge as well as critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication skills.  On average, there are 12 students per class with a maximum of 15.
