My girl was in the class since p2. She is p4 this yr.

Most of the teachers are pretty good. The one teaching my daughter is Ms Jeannie.

She top the overall English, meaning paper+compo+listening.

They do oral prep a few weeks before the actual oral exam in schools, which include oral mock sessions to test the kids and correct their mistakes during then.

My boy also enrolled this year. His English was not as good as his sis, but I could see tremendous improvement, especially in his composition writing after starting parables.

I think Parables do have trial lessons. WHy don't you sent your dd for one to see if she likes it.

I particularly like their worksheets...fun and challenging at the sme time.

I prefer classes with smaller enrollment <12, unlike tution centres whose classes can be up to 18.
