Our all-new weekly summer courses with material designed by "National Geographic" will engage students in beautiful visual content on science, nature, history, geography, space, music, art and more, as they learn to explore life and the world and around them through interactive activities and media. Apart from being in an all-English enviroment, they will also learn how to form opinions, discuss and compare ideas, all of which will help develop their all-round English skills as well as important life skills for the 21st-century such as critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork and digital literacy. Also new this summer is a Pre-Primary English course for Early Years Ages 5-6, which aims to bring the world into the classroom and the classroom to life through music from across the globe, sparking learning interest for young kids as they become more curious about the world and life round them. Limited seats at XinYi and ShiPai Teaching Centres.
Learning to read is the most important factor in children being successful at school and in life.
Research conducted by US and UK government has shown that synthetic phonics is the best method to teach both native and non-native children how to read. It is now used in primary schools all over the world to teach literacy to students.
Our young learner specialists are trained to be able to deliver different kinds of approaches to teaching phonics including:
- phonemic awareness
- guided oral reading
- listening skills
- building up a bank of useful ‘lexical chunks’ and vocabulary
- comprehension strategies
- writing skills
Our classes are learner-centred, multi-sensory and enable your child to discover for themselves rules about spelling, sounding out words and strategies to work out meaning of new words.
Our phonics course not only includes beautifully illustrated student books which introduce new words and sounds and workbooks to give students writing practise. It also contains colourful readers which present the new words in a fun, meaningful context. In addition, your child will also learn useful ‘lexical’ chunks such as classroom instructions, greetings and phrases for working together so that they are confident learning in an all English environment.
