Focus of Kingston International College’s venture in China is to help Chinese students develop their English language ability to a functional level. This will give the students the confidence to use English as a medium of conversation and serve as a fundamental step leading to study overseas.
The intention of the Kingston International College management team is to provide high quality English language tuition at a minimal cost to Chinese students. The management team has a long term view of helping each student and treating this duty seriously as part of the school’s commitment to rebuilding the society.
The philosophy adopted by Kingston International College is to deliver the English language tuition in the secondary school system (the Chinese call it Middle School), which is composed of three years junior and three years senior high school. Having six years of study will give the Chinese students a very strong grounding in English language, raising their English language ability to a level equivalent to or better than that of other non English speaking countries. The adoption of this long term plan will assure the success of the system.
