Teaching principles


Teaching 1English is used as a language of instruction in all subjects. English teaching materials are adapted by the teachers to suit the difficulty level of the students. In the senior classes, pupils work with authentic resources. Language assistants encourage students to try out new words and structures. These situations promote natural conversation with native speakers and the students have the opportunity to practice English in practically all of the subjects.

Tutorials, which take place primarilly in the first year, are lessons in which only two students work with one native speaker. In that way, the students not only recieve our full attention, but also experience their own language skills more directly. Student-centered work with authentic English resources is a common method applied from the very beginning.

Furthermore we offer After School Clubs (ASC) which offer extra-curricular activities to all LISA pupils.

We offer Maths workshops where pupils can ask Maths-related questions to one of our Maths teachers.
