TIS offers a separate full-immersion programme in English on Wednesday. As a priority, the programme is open to all children currently enrolled at TIS but we will also accept applications from the wider community. TIS offers an individual academic programme that is differentiated according to the needs of your child, from beginners to native-language speakers.
The Wednesday programme accepts children from the age of 5 (Grande Section/ Year 1) until the end of Middle School, age 14 (4ème/ Year 9).
Morning timetables are purely academic and will concentrate on providing the full-range of tuition in English reading, writing and verbal skills. Qualified teachers working with published schemes of work will deliver lessons at the level of English competence of your child since classes are streamed following assessment and according to ability.
In the afternoon, lessons become less formal and develop conversation and interpersonal language skills through Drama and play. The emphasis here is on practice, building confidence and having fun with the English language.
Enrolment in the Wednesday Programme is on a first-come-first-serve basis with current TIS children given priority. Places are strictly limited to 12 students per class. It is also possible to register for half days.
