PRESCHOOL PROGRAMMES
 
This is the current reality- your child needs to be able to read by the first day of Primary One. As worrying as this reality is, The Language League has quality preschool reading and writing programmes which have a high standard of English instruction that not only aim to prepare your child for the foundation years in Primary school, but also make your child a lifelong lover of books and a competent communicator of the English Language.
 
Reading FUNdamentals ( 1 hr 15 mins weekly)
 
This structured and back-to-basics approach to reading is designed to engage your child with interesting stories while teaching the fundamentals of phonics. Our in-house curriculum, using colourful and engaging readers, is designed to put the fun into reading.

The Striving Reader (1 hr 15 mins weekly)
 
It is always worrying for any parent when they discover that their child is struggling to read. This programme is targeted at readers in Primary 1 or 2 who are reading below grade-levels. This supplemental literacy intervention goes back to the fundamentals of reading and lays the building blocks of reading through a revisiting of phonics and vocabulary building. Our Preschool Curriculum Director will assess each student’s reading ability at registration.
 
Intervention: Primary 1-2
 
Speech and Drama ( 1 hr weekly )
 
Our creative speech and drama lessons are structured around dramatic play, story enactment, imagination journeys, theatre games, music and dance. "Let’s pretend" is the norm in our creative classes and our students are encouraged to articulate their ideas and expressions in a stimulating classroom environment. Classes are available at every level from Nursery to Primary 2. Conducted by professional actors and/or directors, our Speech and Drama classes will bring out confidence in any child while encouraging high levels of spoken English.
 
Our Teachers
 
Our Preschool programmes are conducted by experienced Early Childhood educators with high levels of written and spoken English. After all, your child needs a good role model of the English Language in order to master reading, writing and communicating.

Speech and Drama
 
Show and Tell and Oral Presentations are part and parcel of the bite-sized assessments in Lower Primary. If your child lacks the confidence and competence in speaking publically to his teachers and peers, our Speech and Drama classes will help put the pizzazz in her performance and improve her grades. These classes are 1 hour and 15 minutes long.
