ESL is a traditional term for the use or study of the English language by non native speakers in an English speaking environment. It is a specialized approach used to teach English.
St. Peter’s School Kodaikanal is one of the very few schools in India to have a separate ESL department. The ESL department specially caters to students from non-English speaking countries like Korea, Thailand, and China who are looking to develop their English.
After learning adequate English skills in the ESL class room, the children are transferred to regular classes and join the main stream of academic curriculum.
Another unique feature of St. Peter’s School Kodaikanal is to recruit teachers from the United States who have exclusive training in ESL teaching methodology. Special training is also given to our Indian teachers to handle ESL classes effectively.
