The English Council’s Online LIVE PSLE English Language Preparation will cultivate all the needed knowledge and skills of learners, so they are well primed and confident in taking on the National Examination. This virtual classroom comprehensively covers each and every component within the PSLE English Language syllabus – Writing, Language Use & Comprehension, Listening Comprehension and Oral Communication, and is suitable for learners in both Primary 5 & 6.
Learners will be introduced to clear and simple step-by-step approaches on ways to excel in writing creative and insightful narrative, personal recount and descriptive essays by honing their observation, description and analysis skills as well as cultivating a critical awareness of literary techniques and craftsmanship.
This online programme will also focus on all aspects of language use and vocabulary-building as well as developing a learner’s keen understanding of different question types in Comprehensions and how to best tackle them. For Oral Communication and Listening Comprehension, learners will be taught effective skills in active listening, elocution and communication.
Apart from the Online Live Classroom sessions not being physically in person, they will still be virtually ‘face-to-face’ and there will be minimal disruption in every other respect in a learner’s development of his or her skill set in all the necessary components within the PSLE English Language syllabus.
Learners will be given ample opportunities to apply what they have learnt through mini-practices, collaborative exercises, home assignments and periodic mock tests, to name a few. Learners simply need to submit all given home assignments online, which will be assessed on a weekly basis so as to properly chart each learner’s progress. Consistent online feedback will allow for better retention of knowledge and skills.
All learners need is access to preferably a desktop computer or laptop. If learners do not have access to the former or latter, mobile devices are another alternative.
No stone will be left unturned in this skillfully crafted, broadly inclusive and holistic online programme with fully live classroom sessions, that is keenly attuned to the varying learning needs and styles of different learners.
