The English department seeks to foster and appreciation of all genres of literature in each student so that they will be able to use spoken, written, and visual language to accomplish their own purposes. At the same time, we strive to make all students aware of the importance of having grammatically correct oral and written communication skills that will serve them throughout their academic lives and in their future careers. Since most of our classes are quite small, students receive individual attention and are expected to participate actively and responsibly in a team environment. In addition, students develop the abilities and skills necessary to work independently. This allows students to be successful as a part of a whole class, in a small group, as well as independently. The English department is supportive of interdepartmental activities and tries to relate studies in other departments to English. Finally, as we an English department in an international school with an international setting and student body, we find it appropriate to use our classes as a forum for the exploration of our differing cultural heritages, thereby increasing our understanding of each other and enriching our study of literature.
