English & Philosophy
Language is a tool for communication, reflection and learning. It is the foundation of knowledge and we actively promote self-reflection and critical thinking.
The English and Philosophy Department at IEGS offers English 5, 6 and 7, Philosophy 1 and 2, as well as Creative Writing and Rhetoric. For International Baccalaureate students we offer English A: Literature and Language, English B and Philosophy.
Our highly qualified teachers are native English speakers with a wealth of experience from around the world. Several of our teachers also work professionally in their chosen fields outside of IEGS.
Our goals are to encourage our students to become effective English users, to develop their critical thinking skills and to broaden their cultural horizons. Many of our students go on to study and work abroad where their linguistic range and cultural insights are valuable assets for working in international contexts.
The department participates in a number of extra-curricular activities including theatre and museum visits, debate competitions, and an annual creative writing publication.
