Our lower secondary learner course will improve your child's vocabulary and grammar skills, and develop their confidence with English. MIDDLE SECONDARY (14 - 15 YEARS) For children born in 2004 or 2005. Our middle secondary course can give your child that all-important competitive edge and will help your child work more independently and confidently in group environments. UPPER SECONDARY (16 - 17 YEARS) For children born in 2002 or 2003. Our Upper Secondary courses are specifically aimed at our older teenage students (16-17 years). We are pleased to announce that from the start of Session 3 this year we will be moving to Secondary Plus which is our global product for secondary students. These are customised courses to enable students who have just completed their O - Levels to continue studying with us. Therefore at the beginning of the year students study with us for more hours and move to a once week option once they resume school. Each Upper Secondary course is similar to our other Young Learner courses as it is a year-long course. The Secondary Plus course materials aim to develop effective and independent language learners via a methodology which encourages students to prepare, implement and regulate their learning with the guidance of their teacher. This will involve students adopting a pro-active attitude and approach towards their learning where they conduct pre-lesson tasks and research in order to maximise learning time and adopt a questioning approach in the classroom. Learning outcomes are clearly communicated to students so that they actively work towards which increases engagement and motivation. In addition, our Upper Secondary courses are designed to help students develop and enhance the skills needed to use English confidently in different social settings. We also emphasise skills required for higher education such as making presentations and writing essays expressing opinions. We believe that enabling students to express themselves confidently is important as they prepare for their future. Our older teenagers are strongly encouraged to take ownership of their learning through a variety of activities enhanced by project work and other guided tasks. These focus on enhancing their speaking and writing skills to better equip them as they prepare to take their first steps into higher education or work towards their dream job.
