Inauguration of the 1st GVS EAP class


We are really pleased to inform, you that the Worldwide Education Fund of The Dallas Foundation (W.), Lincoln Comers Pakistan and American Spaces Tajikistan Inauguration the first GVS EAP class on January 18th, 2022.

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 don’t meet the minimum English-language entry requirements. This is where GVS’s new EAP program comes in.

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

Around 100 students joined the kickoff of the GVS-EAP Program. The program was
moderated by Mr. Aurang Zeb Manager – American Spaces Program of the U.S.
Consulate General Lahore. Ms. Bryce Isham – Public Affairs Officer, gave the welcome remarks followed by the Global Virtual School’s Managing Director, Dr. Cristina Artenie, who explained the aims of the EAP Program. Last but not least Dr. Ahsan Bashir – Director of Student Counselling Center, thanked the partners and WEF for conducting a much-needed program.

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

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