English Department

Developing an understanding of the nature and value of one’s own culture is a fundamental starting point for any educational program claiming to be international.
The BSGE English department shares its goals with the IB Diploma program and aims to:

  • Encourage a personal appreciation of literature and develop an understanding of the techniques involved in literary criticism
  • Develop the students’ powers of expression, both in oral and written communication, and provide the opportunity for practicing and developing the skills involved in writing and speaking in a variety of styles and situations
  • Broaden the students’ perspective through the study of works from other cultures and languages.
