The British Council Qatar is introducing a new set of courses offering academic support to students attending British or International curriculum schools in Doha. The course, English for International Schools, is initially open to children from the ages of 11 to 14 years, who do not speak English as a mother tongue and are studying in British or International curriculum schools. The courses are designed to support these children across the whole curriculum by improving their use of English and their study skills, ultimately improving their academic performance in class and in examinations.
Classes will be held on Saturdays, from 9 Am to 12 PM, and the 10-week 30-hour course will run from December 14 2013 until 3 March 2014. The classes will be held at the British Council in Al Sadd.
Registration for the course begins on the 7th of December and ends on the 14th of December. Interested parents are encouraged to register early for limited places by bringing their children along for a short initial level assessment test.
Director of English Language Services at the British Council, Mr Robert Taylor, says “These courses have been developed by educational specialists who are experts in teaching English as a Second Language. Our aim is to provide strong academic support to students across the entire curriculum, as research has identified that increased confidence and proficiency in written and spoken English helps children in all subjects.”
