Being a parent in the 21st century is not an easy feat.
Our children are expected to excel academically while being well-rounded individuals, and as parents, we feel the responsibility to do all we can to help our children succeed and be happy.
But how? What tools do we have to help our children improve their language skills, besides extra tuition and pages of assessment books?
Our suite of parent workshops aims to answer these questions.
The first workshop, Tips for Reading and Storytelling, is aimed at providing parents of younger children with reading strategies that exploit texts more fully than just reading them aloud - not just to make them critical readers, but to encourage and support a love for reading that will sustain them through the more demanding upper primary, secondary and JC years, and beyond.
The second and third workshops, How to Help Your Children with Pronunciation and How to Help Your Children with Grammar, examine precision in language use. Our children’s ability to express themselves and communicate effectively plays a vital role in their being able to operate in a setting that expects 21st century competencies. In these workshops, you will learn basic terminology and examine different models of grammar and pronunciation, and get some practical ideas of how to help your children improve their accuracy.
