Philosophy of EAL at AISJ

AISJ welcomes, includes and celebrates all our students. Every family and individual students is welcomed into our community with the utmost respect for their languages, Nationalities, religions, cultures, or any other defining attribute. We see the maintenance of mother tongue crucial to the emotional, social, personal and educational development of our students and we actively support the maintenance of the mother tongue, alongside the acquisition of the English Language medium. The fundamental learning objective in the EAL environment is to enable the EAL students’ learning abilities in the English Language Medium in order for them to be able to access the rich and varied mainstream curriculum and all the learning experiences, in and out of the classroom at AISJ.
