Intensive English Support Classes

Prepare Your Child for International School Success

Learning English need not be confined to building on a child’s literacy skills alone. At the Australian International School Malaysia, a child who joins our Intensive English classes learns other skills such as the academic language of Science and Mathematics and is given the opportunity to interact with other mainstream students during activities such as, Physical Education, Music, Drama, Visual Arts and through co-curricular activities in a safe and secure international school environment. 

The Intensive English lessons are delivered by experienced international teachers with qualifications in teaching English as a Second Language. Students are in mainstream classes with English speaking students most of the time and are withdrawn for approximately 40% of the time each week to work in small intensive classes for English, Maths, Science and Humanities.
