Starter vs Standard Program

Starter Program

Eligibility

Recommended for students scoring C5 and below.

Z

Focus

Apart from the content mentioned above, the Starter Programme will focus more on basic grammatical rules and will follow a more formulaic approach to understanding the English papers.

Students will be re-introduced to foundational knowledge and will not be pushed to memorise vocabulary that they may not use on their own accord.
Instead, more focus will be placed on exam-taking strategies, such as maximising content-points and learning to adequately answer every question with basic – but accurate – vocabulary and grammar.

h

Evaluation

Students will be re-assessed on the 8​th lesson and every subsequent 4​th​ lesson to determine if they are suited to join the Standard Programme should they so choose.

Standard Program

Eligibility

Recommended for students scoring B4 and above.

Z

Focus

the Standard Programme will focus more on helping students expand upon their current knowledge and will include more drills in the form of assignments and model papers.

The Standard Programme assumes a familiarity with the English papers and will work towards exposing students to as much variety as possible.

Apart from exam-taking strategies, focus will also be placed on expanding their vocabulary and general knowledge. Class discussions and brainstorming sessions will help students find their own “voice” and relate their papers to relevant, real-world examples.
