Develops the ability to listen to, read and view a wide range of literary and informational/functional texts from print and non-print sources in a critical manner. This includes:
Learn to interpret the multimodal elements in a visual test and be equipped with the skills to answer literal, inferential and evaluative questions.
(TEXT 2, 3 AND SUMMARY)
Students will be taught specific techniques for paraphrasing, deducing meaning of unfamiliar lexical items and drawing inferences, among many other skills.
SPEAK AND WRITE
Inculcates in students the ability to use the English language as a communication tool to represent ideas for various purposes, audiences and contexts in a coherent and consistent manner. This includes:
Accurately pinpoint grammatical errors, however subtle, in a given text.
SITUATIONAL AND CONTINUOUS WRITING
Rather than memorizing ‘model’ essays, students will be taught to apply different techniques to vary sentence structures and develop ideas. These techniques aim to transform their writing in a short period of time and allow them to write with confidence for any given topic.
In addition to developing students’ confidence in articulating ideas and engaging in discussions during the usual lesson, we also conduct dedicated lessons to prepare students for the oral examination by training them to read aloud with accurate pronunciation.
