Small Class Sizes

At ISLA Business School, all of our classes have small sizes and a low student-teacher ratio of 15:1. This provides to our students the best benefits from our highly qualified teachers:

 

– EACH STUDENT PARTICIPATES
The less the number of students per class, the better they get attention from the teacher. Therefore they are obliged to take part and express their ideas and opinions.

-BETTER RESULTS

It has been proved that students in smaller classes have higher grades and perform better on their exams.

 

-BETTER LEARNING
Students learn more and faster in small classes and therefore, the course material progresses more quickly. Students have to share their opinions and ask and answer questions, it gives them confidence and benefits their peers.

 

 

 

-ENHANCED TEACHING
Teachers at the front of a small class have more opportunities to observe and assess the class as a whole and the students as individuals. Learning is further enhanced when teachers and students can interact spontaneously in the classroom.

 

 

-CLASSES ARE QUIET

Small distractions and noise can disturb the progression and the comprehension of the lesson. Students get less distracted and noisy in small classes, as the teacher’s attention can cover a small number of learners. The class is more disciplined and well-behaved.

The fact that the number of students does not exceed 15 per class helps the teachers to assist each of them and to overcome their difficulties. Students have the opportunity to express themselves in classes especially during the conversational classes. Moreover, the comfort in our classrooms is insured by the air conditioning system.

All those benefits from small class sizes are part of the multiple strenghts of ISLA Business School. The quality of the education given in our school is our priority.
