Being aware that a bilingual or multilingual individual is always a step ahead in international platforms, we attach great importance to raise bilingual individuals by implementing English courses through the most accurate and latest foreign language acquisition methodologies. Today, learning English as a second language at an early age is one of the most important advantages enabling the child to use his/her full potential at the highest level in his/her future life. The earlier one starts learning English, the more beneficial it is. Our English language program tailored to be implemented via the most accurate methods enables our children to learn English faster, easier, and more effectively while having fun.
While teaching English to children, it is of great importance to teach practical and applicable use. Boosting our children's ability in using English properly, fluently, and effectively as required by international bodies associated with learning English as a second language will help prepare them for receiving education abroad or conducting world studies at international standards in the future.
As Near East Junior College, we believe that the learning process shouldn't be stressful for children; rather, it should be fun and inspiring. To this end, our programs are meticulously tailored to help the kids develop reading, listening, writing, and speaking skills spontaneously in a safe and fun environment. As self-confidence has a crucial role in learning, our experienced and competent teachers always consider the improvement of our students' self-confidence forefront. The students' willingness in learning English and using it more effectively increases as their self-confidence improves.
Since English is used as an international language all around the world, our children need to develop their communicative and academic English from an early age. Our bilingual education, which is supported in 7 basic areas in Preschool, is taught in both Turkish and English along with many activities designed to boost learning. While our children experience active learning, we provide them with every opportunity required to develop their language skills. Since a person with a second foreign language is always a step ahead in international platforms, we offer French as a second foreign language course. As our education approach makes the curricular transition possible and our teachers implement their lessons actively and creatively, the learning process is fun and open to development. The point that we focus on is to lay the foundation for the children's future education in the best way.
In collaboration with Cambridge University, Near East Junior College continues to work on becoming a Cambridge School. To ensure an inquiry-based approach to learning and raise our students as individuals who are capable to overcome the challenges of the 21st Century, our curriculum focuses on developing reading and listening, writing, and speaking skills within the framework of Cambridge Global English. Along with Cambridge Global English, Near East Junior College also provides a contribution to English language learning by offering Mathematics and Science in English. Our course programs are also tailored and carried out in line with the education system in TRNC. In addition to these, we help develop our children's self-confidence in speaking and using language by organizing many activities throughout the year. "Word Play", Book Presentation", "Drama and Games", and "General Culture" are some of these activities.
Since 1998, Near East Junior College has been preparing her students for Cambridge English Qualifications. Pre A1 Starters, A1 Movers, and A2 Flyers are internationally recognized examinations that correspond to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Designed to assess the English language skills of children, each of these three tests helps develop the student's skills at that level. All 4 language skills – reading, writing, listening and speaking – are handled separately and learning is brought to life with familiar topics for children. Our school has achieved hundred percent success in these exams so far.
As Near East Junior College, we are devoted to preparing all of our children to find a place in society with their English language skills and paving the way for them towards success in their future lives.
