English Classes
Upon arrival at the NOBEL International School Algarve students take an English language test so they can be placed in the appropriate class according to their level of English. Each student’s progress is then monitored throughout their course and students may change classes as their learning progresses.

At the ISA summer English language school, students rapidly develop their language skills with the help of our professional and friendly teachers. Most of our teachers spend all year teaching at ISA. Their aim is not only to teach grammar but to help students develop the confidence to speak and use their English language skills in real life situations. We encourage students to speak English at all times; in lessons and during activities and cultural excursions. As well as dedicated English language classes, students will also receive further ‘European’ lessons in English with topics such as History, Everyday Life, the Arts, Country and People.

Language topics are chosen to stimulate lively discussions in class. The emphasis is firmly placed on helping students improve their listening and speaking skills. This is facilitated by using a wide range of classroom activities including role-play, games, drama, pair-work and group-work.
