English

Goals

  • Listen, read and view critically with high levels of accuracy. To develop a holistic understanding and appreciation of various literary and informational sources from both print and non-printed sources
  • Speak, write and represent in standard English acceptable internationally to prepare students in a globalized economy. To develop strong grammar and fluent linguistic abilities which is appropriate for different situations, audiences and culture
  • Understand and use standard English, grammar and vocabulary accurately and develop an awareness of how speakers and writers string words together and use language to communicate ideas

Approach

  • Motivate learning and assisting students to be aware of what is required to be learned. Guiding students to establish connections with what they already know
  • Consolidate and reinforce existing concepts
  • Diagnosis of students’ requirements, abilities and interests and close monitoring of their learning and provision of useful feedback for areas of improvement and self-assessment
  • Teaching in real-world contexts and use of relevant real life examples
  • Facilitation of discovery by supporting students to learn a skill, strategy, process or rule without direct instructions from the teacher
  • Clear directions and explanations will be given in a systematic way to help clarify skills, strategy and processes in English
