English for Secondary and Junior College
The British Council four year Secondary tuition course will support your child to succeed in the 'O' Level English exam. The topics areas tested in the exam change every year so students need to have not only solid command of language but also a broad general knowledge.
This is the focus of our new comprehension and composition courses at Secondary 1, 2 and 3. We systematically teach topics relating to current world issues, widening students' general knowledge and equipping them to comprehend texts on an increasingly complex range of topics and to write well-informed compositions. This is supported with weekly comprehension and composition question practice tailored to each level by an MOE expert. At Secondary 4 we bring this together by analysing past 'O' Level papers, anticipating common errors and teaching key exam strategies.
We challenge our students to think deeply and critically about themes and their own performance. We believe that this leads to better grades.
As world leaders in English language education, the British Council supports teachers to continuously develop, keeping up-to-date with current educational research both internationally and locally. They use a range of interactive teaching techniques to engage students in lessons and motivate them to study. In addition, our teachers provide regular personalised feedback to students to ensure they are making progress.
This is the perfect preparation for Junior College and the General Paper, with increasing demands for a broad and deep general knowledge. The two year British Council GP1 and 2 courses continue to teach this knowledge through our topic based approach coupled with exam practice. Following this, students will be ready to succeed in University and play an active role in society.
