English for Primary Level

Read much about Chinese Enrichment program and would love to hear from parents if you send your kiddos to any English program.

My daughter is doing ICR right now (for good six months). Not much of an improvement. Colleague recommended Morris Allen. Read about Lorna Whiston too. Any recommendation and feedback from anyone?

Personally, I feel British Council is more suitable for children beyond 6 years old.

Hi,

Wondering are you still looking for another recommendation for english enrichment programmes ? Don't know if it's help or not, but maybe you can contact Sabrina Tay at Galilee School of Language & Learning, to know more about their programmes. I've heard they not just teaching foreign language, but the fine arts also. Will PM you for details, whether you want to know more about them and hope it help..

Have found thread commented about the three centre separately, so which one is the best choice among our Kiasu parents for upper primary level and P6 preparation?

I was told that British Council's classes not very catered to the school's syllabus. Just for enrichment. Can anyone comment?

I spoke with them and they mentioned something like they do follow MOE syllabus. Apparently my girl will have to go thru a test to ascertain if she can get into the Creative English P1 level or P1 Reading course.

But would like to find out parents who are sending their kids to British council how they feel about the course and curriculum - and other aspect like teacher etc.
