What is Green School English?
Green School English offers full-time, immersive and holistic English language learning experiences for international students and local students. Green School English programs encompass classroom learning of integrated language skills, as well as experiential learning components that connect students with nature, provide service learning opportunities, and offer exposure to practical skills building and outdoor adventure. Green School English courses draw on the rich cultural and natural environment of the locality and offer a bridge for students learning English to apply for enrollment as full-time members of the internationally acclaimed community of learners at Green School Bali.
Green School English supports the Kul Kul Connection, Green School’s Community Integration Program, that connects the international community of Green School with the local community of Sibangkaja. Established in 2013, Kul Kul Connection engages with over 300 local students annually through an after-school English and Sustainability learning programme at Green School Bali through the Trash for Class programme. Students pay for this programme with 5 kg of recyclable trash per semester saving tons of waste from local waterways, beaches and oceans.
All profits from Green School English go towards Green School’s Kul Kul Connection program.
