Refresher and Bridging Departments are specially designed for students who are in the Beginner and Intermediate levels respectively. Interesting, fun, and tedious learning happens in the two departments since most of the students need to study hard and also to be able to advance to higher levels.The classrooms in the two departments are set up in a way that both the teacher and the student feel comfortable in the learning process.
The 1on1 classroom is spacious enough for the teacher and student. It contains a table, 2 chairs, and a white board. Every room has fan for ventilation even when the door is closed. Studying on the 1-on-1 classroom means that the focus of the teacher and the class lies solely on the student and his or her improvement.
The 4 on 1 group classroom on the other hand, brings a more interactive place for the students and the teacher. Students are given a chance to communicate with their peers using the English language ONLY! Teachers monitor and guide them as they do group works and at the same time learn more helpful English lessons for their development.
The purpose of Big Group classroom is for students to interact with each other and for the teacher to evaluate and teach the students in a more diverse way. Big group class is usually composed of students from different countries. The students share their culture, traditions and others using the English language at all times. The best thing is that students can experience all classes in the different classrooms here at Pines International Academy, and they realize that no matter which room they use for class, there is the assurance that English learning and development happens.
