Our Effective English Programme at CPSKG (EEP) achieves a balance between successful traditional teaching practices and current trends in second language teaching. It is a tailor-made programme designed and monitored by our professional and experienced teaching team. Below is an overview of our CPSKG EEP.

Immersion strategy - Quality English contact time on daily basis

We provide an effective English language learning environment with English-speaking time every day.
We aim to enhance the children's ability to communicate and interact with each other, with the aid of native English speaking teachers, in a lively atmosphere.

Theme-based approach

Theme exploration through reading, writing, listening and speaking to enhance the children's ability in literacy. We support the all-round development of students as effective learners. Theme learning includes:

  • Theme-based vocabulary
  • Interactive activities & games
  • Songs and poems

Reading and Comprehension Skills

Fun with books and storytelling

We aim to ignite young children's interest in books and stories, highlighting their ability to recognize high frequency words and to sound out new words. Children are frequently given the opportunity to explore books. Techniques are taught such as looking at the cover, identifying characters and expressing feelings toward the story.

Writing Skills

Guided Writing - Our Creative Writers

We integrate discussion, writing, reading and art to include the different learning areas.
