Hi xueyan,

We do cover Oral practices in our classes closer to the examinations. However, we do not cover listening comprehension at the moment. In addition to Oral, we also cover a Critical Thinking component every few weeks - exercises that will help students familiarise themselves with reported language commonly found in articles (useful for Cloze) and grow them to be confident and effective communicators (applicable for Oral).

Do drop by any of our centres or give us a call if you would like to check out the material or find out more.

Thank you,
TAS

How do we choose a good book for reading? In TAS, the books that we recommend have 3 main ingredients:

1. Interesting plot
2. Good vocabulary usage
3. Varied sentence structure

An interesting plot will help engage children and make them want to read more, while the vocabulary and varied sentence structure will hopefully translate to better writing for the children.

Each week, TAS recommends newly curated books for children of all levels on our social media. Follow us on Facebook & Instagram (Links below) for updates, giveaways, grammar tips, and curated books every week!

We hope everyone is having a great weekend!

A peek inside our Composition Essential Kit! Each of our P4-6 students received a copy last week! Our parents and students may use it as a quick revision or reference book when writing compositions — just in time to prepare for the upcoming Mid-Year Examinations! The book is not for sale but we'll have another book ready for the public in the later part of the year. Keep an eye out for that!

In case you missed it, our Early Bird discount for Holiday Programme ends tomorrow (10 May)!

In addition to our Exam Prep programme, check out our Creative Writing & Enrichment class!!!
At the end of the Creative Writing & Enrichment class, students will have their hard work printed into a mini booklet and sent to them after a few weeks. From story planning, to writing the story, to receiving the finished product, let you child experience the life of a published author!

Teachers will break down and explain the purpose of each technique and how it can be used in story writing, and students will be guided to apply the commonly used writing techniques into their short story.
