Developing an effective Teachers of English as a New Language program, or ENL, begins with a statement of purpose. The values and philosophies of holistic education allows Sappo to present an educational philosophy program and a practical approach to ENL instruction. The Sappo program aligns with an internationalist world view that embraces a learner-centered methodology. This methodology embraces the value of cultural relevance and individual experience, which is self-evident in lessons. Sappo’s International Student Education encompasses the realization that citizens of the world have more similarities than differences, and long-term mutual interests are as valuable as short-term individual needs. This theory is logically difficult to deny, appeals intuitively, and is in direct opposition to isolationist orientation. The international student is viewed as a valuable social and intellectual asset, and the Sappo program is designed to enhance and accommodate each student throughout the acculturative process. This leads to enriched academic development and a successful future. The rapid influx of international students to the west has raised ethical concerns throughout the higher education community, as seen across media and literature review. For example, many Chinese students are not taught how to communicate adequately and navigate through the professional, competitive professional world. This lack of preparation puts them in line with low-level jobs. The Sappo ENL program is designed to combat these issues found in most classroom settings by immersing international students in a supportive Holistic setting. This setting offers extensive benefits to the international student, including:... [-]
