This is our regular weekly Chinese enrichment classes.
This course is developed in accordance with the MOE syllabus and examination blueprint. Our programme differs in its focus on teaching skills and strategies of reading, writing and test taking instead of just working on assessment papers. For writing, we have included all the skills needed for writing school essays. Our trainers adopt an explicit approach to teaching where they model and demonstrate the strategies clearly to the students. In addition, we weave thinking skills into our lessons and nurture positive learning and thinking dispositions in students to facilitate successful learning.
Each lesson is conducted over a 2 hour period. During each lesson, students will be taught new strategies or will work on consolidating their use of the strategies taught. Trainers will demonstrate how to use the strategies and students will use them to accomplish given tasks. Practice assignments are given in class for students to complete so that the newly acquired skills are applied and assessed. Students are encouraged to reflect on each lesson and on their own learning.
Before I joined AKLC, my Chinese grades were not good and I had trouble recognising words. After joining AKLC in 2016, I was P3 then, I improved tremendously. The results improved from below 20 to above 60. I was awarded the STAR Award - Most Improved Student, in recognition of my improvement. The trainers are patient and helped me a lot. They show concern and answer any doubts that I have. They even assisted me in my schoolwork. Thank you, trainers!
I joined AKLC in the year of 2015. Before I joined AKLC, my grades were not good. I improved a lot after joining AKLC. My Chinese improved from 49% to 89% and my Maths improved from 74% to 84%. The trainers were very helpful. They coached me patiently and explained to me whenever I faced difficulty with questions. This is the main difference between AKLC and other tuition centres that I have attended before.
