Find out how we can equip your child for exam success in Semester 2.
The Primary English enrichment courses at the British Council are designed to support your child on the pathway to a successful PSLE. Our courses supplement learning in local schools and target areas that we know Singaporean students find most challenging. We believe that having greater world knowledge gives our students an edge in school oral, comprehension and composition activities.
This course is designed to develop your child’s literacy and writing skills. They will become more confident readers and will learn to identify the different features of written texts and infer meanings from context. Students will learn to organise texts, use grammar accurately and produce a variety of different text types in line with the MOE syllabus. Weekly Show and Tell sessions will give your child the opportunity to grow in confidence and improve their pronunciation.
Primary 2 - 3
This course is based on authentic children’s literature and provides practice in many MOE type composition, comprehension and oral activities. Your child will gain comprehension skills through literature-based lessons and experiment with MOE text types by doing supported writing tasks. In our communicative classrooms, your child will gain speaking confidence. They will also learn to take pride in their work by acting on peer and teacher feedback.
Primary 4 - 5
At upper primary, we focus on PSLE exam skills development, in line with the same change of focus in schools. We will help improve your child's comprehension techniques and further develop their composition skills through a range of MOE text types. Your child will also gain practice in regular PSLE-style exam questions.
To identify areas of improvement, your child will get quality, individual feedback on their learning progress. We will also help your child to achieve a deeper knowledge of Singaporean and international topics and apply it to writing, reading and oral tasks for better results.
Primary 6 (PSLE)
This is a PSLE preparation course that provides intensive exam practice, targeting crucial problem areas for Singaporean students. All exam tasks are deconstructed to provide students with a greater depth of understanding of the challenges; strategies are highlighted before students complete rigorous practice activities.
Your child will sharpen their PSLE compositions through frequent practice and individual feedback. Through regular challenging PSLE-style texts, your child will learn to gain marks in comprehension assessments. We will cover proven exam techniques to boost their exam strategies for PSLE and beyond. They will also target personal improvements ahead of the PSLE, through regular testing and feedback.
Fees for our Primary enrichment courses start from $1,365 for a half-year course (20 lessons).
