What will you learn?
Structure & Speaking Practice
This class incorporates listening, speaking, vocabulary and grammar to give students opportunities to practise language in meaningful situations. Students are trained to target accuracy through application of rules in activity-based situations.
Reading & Writing
Students learn to improve their reading comprehension and reading speed while practising skills such as predicting content, skimming, scanning, drawing inferences and conclusions, guessing the meaning of new vocabulary from context and summarising information.
Students respond to the reading material through group discussions and writing. In the process, they learn to write different types of paragraphs and essays—descriptive, comparison/contrast, cause-effect, problem-solution, argumentative, etc.—and also improve their critical thinking skills.
The main purpose of this class is to build speaking fluency. In this class, students have the opportunity to discuss different topical issues based on current interesting themes, broadening their spectrum of vocabulary in the process. The functional aspects of the language and speaking skills are also emphasised here.
Language Technology Centre
E-learning is an essential component in most ELS programmes and in the CIEP, students have access to state-of-the-art e-learning tools complete with award-winning multimedia language learning courseware and other digitised resources that complement and reinforce what they learn in class.
This multimedia lab hour nurtures independent learning, targets enrichment activities besides providing reinforcement and practice for what is learned in the classroom.
