English Language Acquisition

The study of additional languages in the MYP provides students with the opportunity to develop insights into the features, processes and craft of language and the concept of culture, and to realize that there are diverse ways of living, behaving and viewing the world. 

Language Acquisition in the MYP aims to develop a respect for, and understanding of, other languages and cultures, and is equally designed to equip the students with a skills base to facilitate further language learning. The assessment for language acquisition is criterion-based, based on four equally weighted assessment criteria: Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing.
