Transition to Mainstream International Education:

Join ISHCMC’s Intensive English Language Program Webinar on April 16th, 3:00-4:15pm (ICT)

At the heart of ISHCMC’s inclusive and forward-thinking educational approach is the Intensive English Language Program (IELP), designed to bridge language gaps and empower students for whom English is not a native language. The program is lauded by parents for its comprehensive framework, providing robust support to students who are not yet ready to transition into mainstream education fully.

For many students, who are not native English speakers, enrolling at an international school where lessons are taught in English can be a challenge. From entry exams to science lessons or conversations with a classmate from other countries, it can feel daunting for a low-level English student to adapt to school life. ISHCMC believes that every child should have an equal chance to learn and thrive, every day. This thinking underpins the Intensive English Language Program.

The IELP is an academic program, designed to prepare students to succeed academically and amongst a student cohort of more than 60 different nationalities at ISHCMC. The aim of the program is to aid students with beginner-level English proficiency in adapting to the rigorous academic environment at ISHCMC. Through an intensive 20-week or 40-week program, students learn to fully engage with an IB-style curriculum covering Maths, Science, Language Acquisition, and Humanities, while improving their fundamental English skills in reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

What sets the program apart from other international schools is that the IELP at ISHCMC aligns with the IB Middle Years Program (MYP), ensuring that while the instruction is tailored for varying English language proficiency levels, the content of each lesson remains at the same high standard found in mainstream classes. This content-rich program is inquiry-based and project-driven, offering students a comprehensive educational experience. Outside of academic subjects, students also get the chance to engage in Physical and Health Education, Arts & Design, and Positive ISHCMC initiatives, developing the whole child and preparing them for a smooth transition into ISHCMC’s mainstream MYP classes.

Parents of IELP students speak volumes about the program’s impact. They appreciate the detailed content and the personalized follow-up each student receives, ensuring that every child’s unique educational needs and learning pace are catered to. Emphasizing the program’s importance for her daughter, Mio, a parent from Japan, explained “we believe that her growth was fostered by both her language progress and the power of non-verbal interactions she had with mainstream students. The detailed content and follow-up of the program were beyond our expectations”.

The integration of the IELP within the ISHCMC secondary campus is one of the aspects of the program that is warmly received by the parent community. It provides IELP students with a valuable opportunity to interact with their peers in the mainstream educational setting, fostering a sense of community and belonging. This integration is instrumental in facilitating a smooth transition for students as they progress in their English proficiency and academic journey. “Having transferred from Korea, the IELP was a great program for taking the first step towards attending an international school. The experience has undoubtedly contributed to my son’s development, not only as a language learner but also as a young individual” remarked a parent, highlighting the inclusive and supportive learning environment fostered by ISHCMC.

The program’s location within the secondary campus promotes continuous interaction and integration with the entire ISHCMC community. This sense of community and the constant feedback from parents with children enrolled in the program has been Instrumental in shaping the future direction of the IELP.

The IELP at ISHCMC is more than just an English language program; it lays the groundwork for a wider spectrum of educational and personal growth opportunities for children for whom English is a second language. As one parent eloquently stated, “The IELP at ISHCMC doesn’t just teach English; it opens doors to a world of opportunities for our children.” This statement encapsulates the essence of the IELP – to unlock each student’s potential and prepare them to become active, confident participants in an internationally-minded community like that of ISHCMC.

To gain further insights into the IELP program and witness its transformative impact, ISHCMC warmly invites you to the upcoming webinar on Tuesday, April 16, 2024, at 3:00 PM (ICT). The session will delve into the program’s methodologies, successes, and the vibrant community it nurtures.
