At SAI International School we have designed modules to develop the linguistic intelligence of our children. As that first word grows into a sentence and later into conversation, you will be watching a miracle-the miracle of language development.
Our working definition of language encompasses five structural components: phonology, semantics, syntax, morphology, and pragmatics. Phonetics refers to the sounds and the intonation patterns that are associated with spoken language. Semantics encompasses the words of a language and the meanings associated with those words. Syntax describes the grammatical rules of a language-how words combine into phrases and sentences. Morphology refers to the rules that govern the use of morphemes. Morphemes are the smallest units of meaning in a language, including the preformative and ending that mark syntactic and semantic information, such as number (plurals), gender, and tense (past, present, or future). Finally, pragmatics is how we adjust our speech to our audience and use language toward the goal of communication.
In totality we provide to our children the best skills of communication and harness them with speaking and writing abilities which are essential in shaping their lives. VIOLET embodies change and enables the beginners to listen, to know and speak.
