English Learning Programmes

In order to create a rich English learning environment, we have hired native English speakers to plan and teach our English lessons. The learning content is designed based on children’s language skills, interests and needs. This immerses children in an interesting, meaningful, natural English learning setting where they will be able to use basic English to interact with others and the environment, as well as gain confidence in using English. In terms of our teaching strategies, we carry out a variety of learning activities to develop children’s interest in learning English. This will lay the foundation for English learning in the future and make the transition to P1 a smooth one for them.

Diverse English activities Reading stories with students Interesting stories are able to stimulate a child’s motivation to learn and expand their English vocabulary. Children are exposed to English phonics, sentence structures and other English rules when reading together with teachers.   Learn from everyday life Different English learning environments with different scenarios are created to allow students to integrate English into their everyday lives and to discover the fun of learning English naturally and comfortably.   Dramas Children enjoy playing different roles. Through playing out dialogues in dramas, they are able to learn different sentence structures and brush up on their English communication skills in a natural setting, as well as enhance their imagination.   Games Children are born to play. Playing allows them to learn happily. As they take part in play activities, they are able to communicate with others in English and thus get a good grasp of the English language.   Nursery rhymes Children are able to pick up English vocabulary and short sentences through singing nursery rhymes which contain a beautiful melody and interesting lyrics. They also develop confidence and an interest in learning English in a natural, happy learning atmosphere.   Show-and-tell Children share or talk about a certain topic to an audience spontaneously. The activity provides them an opportunity to express themselves in English, and enhances their English speaking and listening skills.   Read-aloud Teachers will teach students the skills to read through stories aloud, and engage them in texts using rich facial expressions and voices so as to offer children early reading experiences and develop their interests in reading.   Storytelling Storytelling creates a relaxing and warm learning atmosphere, making class participation more enjoyable. Children are encouraged to actively participate in class through oral activities, e.g., repeating sentences, reading rhymes or singing together.   Describing pictures Showing colourful pictures to a child helps to spark their imagination. Teachers guide children to describe content within storybooks thus expanding on sentence structures, and strengthening their listening and speaking skills.
