PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This program aims to develop learners’ ability to use English effectively for practical communication; form a solid foundation for the skills required for further study or employment using English as the medium; develop learners’ awareness of the nature of language and language-learning skills; promote learners’ personal development.

Many talented students have excellent grades and could pursue studies abroad or at prestigious universities in their home countries. Even if scholarships might be available to them, too often they meet minimum requirements of English Language Fluency and Proficiency. This is where GVS’s new EAP program comes in.

The trusted IGCSE curriculum helps students improve their English at an advanced level and get ready for successful careers or for post-secondary education. Students get tested with past papers to ensure thy are on par with peers around the world.

CURRENT IMPACT

The EAP Program is currently being delivered in 5 locations in 3 different countries.

2 American Corners in Tajikistan (Isfara and Khulob),
2 Lincoln Corner in Pakistan (Sargodha and Vehari)
1 UCA-SPCE centre in Kabul Afghanistan

The program has been launched on the 8th of January 2022 impacting almost 100 students and learners.
