The English syllabus
Essay Writing Students will learn the fundamentals to writing a good essay, covering areas such as essay structure, essay planning, and question analysis.
Linguistics and Comprehension Linguistics covers the understanding of grammar, the syntax of the English language and phonetics. Our students go through intensive linguistics lessons to help them be able to use and comprehend the English language confidently. Our centre then supplements this with a wide vocabulary covering numerous lexical areas to equip our students with words and phrases to express their ideas better. This eventually comes to play in our Comprehension lessons, where students will use their new mastery of English to analyse, interpret and infer content from the passages and question. Students will also be taught how to present their answers with precision.
