First Cambridge English School confirmed in Kazakhstan

teach-English-in-Kazakhstan.jpgIn its centenary year, the Cambridge English School network has expanded into Kazakhstan for the first time.

A school in Almaty is the first school in Kazakhstan to join a new programme developed by experts in Cambridge which aims to help raise English standards in their school.

The Gymnasium #105 located outside Uraz Zhandossov, Almaty, Kazakhstan is the first school in Kazakhstan to become a member of the Cambridge English School network. It has achieved this status by committing to offer a range of Cambridge English exams to all of its pupils supported by high quality teaching and learning materials from Cambridge University Press. The school teaches children from 6-7 years old to 16-17 and specializes in teaching foreign languages including English, French, and Chinese. English is taught from the first grade. The school has experience of preparing students for Cambridge English: First, which it will now extend to the lower level Key and Preliminary exams and the Young Leaners English Tests.

The schools sees the introduction of these exams as an exciting opportunity to ensure students have an internationally recognised qualification at every stage of their studies, leading up to Cambridge English: First which will give students the passport they need to study at institutions both in Kazakhstan and abroad.

Staff at the school see Cambridge English exams as independent external assessment of what students know and of how teachers teach and are looking forward to working with the local Cambridge English authorised centre in Kazakhstan ‘Study Inn’ to ensure teachers have all the support required for success.
