Additional English Support

  1. Course Synopsis 

This course targets the English language skills of those students whose English proficiency test results have not attained the standards as stipulated in the Language Exit Requirement (LER) for English. To maximize learning outcomes, the course covers a variety of in-class and out-of-class teacher input and student assignments. Upon completion of the course, students will be advised to retake the English proficiency test to obtain the required standards. While the course targets general language skills, there will be more in-class hours and teacher-student consultative hours on productive skills (writing and speaking). Receptive skills such as reading and listening will be strengthened through structured out-of-class or online learning activities.
