How do we address the challenges of effectively equipping all international students, regardless of their starting point in English, with the academic literacy skills necessary to perform at the highest levels? Reducing the verbal deficit of our ESL students is fundamental to their success. This session will present the approaches taken by two high-performing international schools using the specialist training and resources provided by Lexonik. GEMS Wellington International School Dubai, British School Muscat and the Lexonik team from Sound Training will share how Lexonik has worked in their particular contexts and demonstrate the considerable success this approach has had on their students’ confidence, reading age, vocabulary range and performance across all curriculum areas.
