Providing English language support
At PVIS we have students from all over the world, such as France, Vietnam, China, Mauritius, Nepal, New Caledonia, Argentina, and Tahiti to mention but a few.
ESL learners are learners of English as a second ( or additional) language . ESL learners speak languages other than standard English as their first language and bring rich and diverse linguistic and cultural knowledges from these to the classroom and our school.
All ESL learners are given the opportunity to learn standard English in order to access the curriculum and participate actively in learning. The students require specific kinds of instruction to enable them to reach their full potential as independent learners.
These lessons, either individual or in small groups, take place in the language house which is specifically set up for language learning.
