Anisha Global School envisions nurturing confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged students who aspire to be ahead of change & to create the world of infinite creative and productive possibilities world of happiness, progress, prosperity & love.
The importance of language in one’s life and learning can hardly be ignored. The language policy @ Anisha has evolved keeping in mind its vision of nurturing confident, responsible, reflective innovative, engaged and global Citizens.We are committed to the following Practices:
- The medium of learning, teaching, instructions and assessments are in English only unless another language is being taught or assessed.
- Teaching and learning addresses the diversity of student language needs, including those for students learning a language(s) other than their mother tongue.
- Teaching and learning demonstrates that all teachers, students & Parents are responsible for language development of students.
- Collaborative planning and reflection recognizes that all teachers are responsible for language development of students.
At AGS we create a challenging and motivating multilingual environment where the language of instruction is English. We view language as a tool for making meaning in the world. We believe that every student has an individual and a cultural set of experiences, skills and interests, which must be considered in the teaching and learning process. multilingualism and the development of critical literacy are considered important factors in fostering international-mindedness through the promotion of cultural identity, intercultural awareness and global citizenship.
We aim to develop confident, curious, highly proficient and enthusiastic readers, writers, viewers, presenters, speakers and listeners. Language is always taught meaningfully and in context. These contexts vary, but often involve the use of real-life scenarios, audio-visual aids and a wide variety of text types. We advocate the learning of language through inquiry, allowing students to make connections with context, to explore and investigate. The learning of any language is developmental by nature, building constructively on what each individual student knows to help move them forward. At AGS, language is taught holistically. Each programme has specific learning outcomes for the strands of speaking and listening, reading and writing, and viewing and presenting appropriate to the students level. We promote inquiry-based authentic learning through an investigative approach of different genres.

In order to determine the language needs of each student, an informal interaction is held with parents at the Primary level. At other levels, interaction with the student gives an insight into the Language. Students are provided with ample opportunity to hone their skills in English speaking through group discussion, presentations, role-plays and peer interacting in classroom. Students are also encouraged to participate in interhouse debates and declamations and extempore speech Competitions to enchase their public speaking skills.
Students have access to a language lab which allows them to personalise their learning & improvise their language skills. Each and every student has a personalised user access to the online language portal, thereby allowing the teacher to assess & monitor the progress of each and every child. Writing Buddy introduces the writing process and demonstrates simple strategies to help students excel in writing. Through animated tutorials, language activities, and guided practices, students develop necessary writing skills easily. Oral Buddy equips students with clear strategies to tackle the three components of English Oral –reading aloud, picture discussion, and conversation. The step-by-step approach, with guided practices, helps students acquire oral skills and confidence.
