Learning & Support

English Language Development

At the American International School – Ho Chi Minh City, we dedicate ourselves to fostering language growth within the classroom setting. Whether a student is fully proficient in English or in the developmental stages, we firmly believe that all of our students will learn and progress academically. Our qualified teachers understand that each subject area has its own specialized language and work every day to develop that language with all of our students.

Our school subscribes to key research-based guiding principles:

1
Language acquisition is a by-product of quality content-area instruction.
2
Regular formative assessments allow teachers to identify the next steps appropriate to each student’s academic growth as well as to evaluate the overall quality of our academic program.
3
We must meet each student at her or his level of proficiency and understanding in a timely, structured, and consistent manner.

Our enhanced support program not only gives students the chance to hone their skills in a small-group setting, it is designed to guide student progress naturally through the English proficiency levels.
