English Language Department
The English Language Department strives to inculcate a love and appreciation for the language as well as develop effective language use in our students.
The English Language adopts two approaches to provide our students with language learning experience which is engaging and purposeful:
- Building a strong foundation
- Providing rich language for all
The department is guided by the principles and teaching processes of the English Language. Our thematic approach caters to various learning styles and intelligences for greater engagement.In addition, the department adopts two modes of assessments:
- Assessment of Learning
- Assessment for Learning
to monitor and assess students’ learning and bridge learning gaps. The incorporation of experiential learning, collaborative learning, cooperative learning and self-directed learning strategies into our curriculum highlights our deep commitment to raising our students’ competencies and making learning a joy. We hope to broaden and sharpen our students’ minds so that in time they will have the necessary skills and knowledge to take on the challenges of the 21st century.
