Summer time offers an excellent opportunity for students to take up extra lessons to brush up on their language skills. Our English enhancement programmes cover Cambridge examination preparation, phonics, interview skills and drama classes.

Starters, Movers and Flyers (P2 to P6)

They are 15 lessons long, each lasting 1.5 hours or 10 lessons long, each lasting 2 hours.

These programmes cover the vocabulary, all the question types and the test formats that will appear in the respective YLETs. There will also be two mock tests which give students the taste of the real tests. A supplementary vocabulary book will be distributed to provide additional learning support.

These programmes use tailor-made textbooks which are specially developed for the summer programmes. They aim to prepare students for the tests and to help them develop skills and confidence to achieve the best test results. These programmes are suitable for incoming P2 to P6 students who wish to sit for the tests during the summer holiday.
