Listening and Speaking Strategies
To develop students’ listening and speaking skills, our strategy is to maximise students’ opportunity to speak and listen. We achieve this through the following means:
● Effective Communication Lessons (P.1 to P6)
● Drama Lessons (P.4 to P.6)
● Songs and Rhymes
● English Activities
BYOD in the Classroom
Various digital platforms and apps are used in lessons to enhance students’ language skills. Teachers make use of these means to foster teacher-student interaction in English.
Native English Teachers
Mr Nathan and Miss Heidi are our NET teachers.
Students are trained to speak well in Drama Lessons
Students have a chance to perform on stage so as to strengthen their confidence in using English for communication.
English Fun Day
Different kinds of activities are organised to help students improve their English, like taking part in activity booths, singing English songs, spelling games, matching games and learning around the campus, etc.
