“Language learning is a process of discovery. Learner develops ability to use the language for specific communication purposes. Teacher models language use, and facilitates students’ development of language skills”.
Through this program we will comply with Dover Sherborn standards, promoting quality of character, inspiring intellectual curiosity, encouraging teamwork, teaching the students to use their planning time more effectively, and develop problem solving skills by exposing them to the multiple aspects of different cultural backgrounds and their impact on their own life. We are committed to help students to prepare for a smooth and successful transition to the next level.
“Thus, developing the intercultural dimension in language teaching involves recognising that the aims are: to give learners intercultural competence as well as linguistic competence; to prepare them for interaction with people of other cultures; to enable them to understand and accept people from other cultures as individuals with other distinctive perspectives, values and behaviours; and to help them to see that such interaction is an enriching experience”.
