We run English Language courses to help 'O' Level students prepare for the 'O' Level English Examination, and to arm Sec 1, Sec 2 and Sec 3 students with the skills they need to do well in their English Language papers, targeting their comprehension, summary writing, narrative writing and grammar skills.
And upon request, we run PSLE Narrative Writing Boot Camps for P6 students (P4 & P5 students are also welcome to attend these boot camps.)
All our courses are specially designed by our Principal Trainer, Marife Cruz Yap, who is the author of 4 English Language books in the Distinction in English series, published by Marshall Cavendish Education. Marife has been designing and conducting English Language courses for 'O' Level students since April 1998, some 24 years ago.
We also offer two courses for adults:
(i) Adult Beginners' Conversational English Course
for PRC nationals who would like to learn English in order to communicate better with their English-speaking peers.
(ii) How to Speak More Fluently and Clearly
for adult English speakers who would like to learn how to speak better. This course would be good for English Language teachers/parents who would like to be better role models for their students/children, and adults in professions for which fluency in English is a prerequisite or an advantage.
We encourage English Language teachers to attend our courses with their students as part of their Professional Development Programme so that they can follow-up more effectively on the courses. Many teachers have done so over the years and found our courses to be beneficial.
Our inaugural course for EL teachers was launched on the 19th of May this year:
How to Teach 'O' Level Summary Writing Confidently & Effectively
A 3-hr Course for EL Teachers
Conducted via Zoom
This course is targeted at Beginning Teachers, but more experienced teachers are also welcome to attend.
If you are a teacher and you are interested in attending this course, or if you are an HOD/EL who would like to organise this course for some of your colleagues, you can register your interest by sending Marife (97456398) a Whatsapp message.
EL Teachers can book our courses to be conducted at their schools for their 'O' Level students (Sec 3 Exp / Sec 4 Exp / Sec 5NA). Otherwise, upper sec students can attend our online courses..
In past years, several times a year, Marife Yap conducts Public Workshops which are attended by students and teachers from various schools, but these have been put on hold indefinitely because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
