Language support for students not fluent in English

In some cases, the international students who join GEMS (Singapore) have a wonderful talent, however, have limited experience with the English language. For these students, they undergo our English as an Additional Language support programme, which focuses on functional language development across listening, speaking and writing.
For Grades 1-5 a pull-out English as an Additional Language programme is provided four times a week, 45 minutes each period. The Grades 6 to 10 programme provides immersive specialist support which guides overall success within the language and academic progress.
