Second Foreign Language: English
Our aim in English classes starting in 1st grade in IELEV Schools is to teach by using holistic method and activities in a student-centered environment.
In our schools, 2 hours in the first grade, 3 hours in the second grade, 3 hours in the 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 grades and 3 hours in the 4th and 8th grades are taught in English. Our main aim when learning a foreign language is to improve the mental activities of our students with their reading, writing, listening, speaking and reading comprehension skills.
Students start with A1 level and graduate at A2-B1 level. These works are carried out with the aim of developing the language they have learned with the studies that place positive thinking and understanding about the cultures by considering the cultural structure of the language. In order to consolidate the foreign language and culture, important days and weeks are discussed.
The English language is suitable for the level of the student. In small classes, students form sentences that will improve their verbal and written statements. Grades 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 are the basic grammar information.
Students will be able to express their grammatical knowledge from the 5th grade with written explanations. Our students acquire the basic skills of language by developing their ability to answer questions about speech, writing and reading comprehension in 7th and 8th grades.
At this level, short texts, articles and story books are read. Composition studies are done. Speaking skills are reinforced by debates and presentations.
Within the scope of the Cambridge exams, 4th grade starters, 5th grade movers, 6th grade Flyers, 7th grade KET and 8th grade PET exam are applied.
While students are learning English, they also develop culturally with the activities, competitions and excursions organized by the Department of English. English Week, World Scholar Cup (WSC), Junior Model United Nations (JMUN) and Destination Imagination (DI) are among the national and international events in which they participate.
