Foundations develops English language skills by honing and expanding on fundamental early literacy development.
(suitable for N1 and N2 students)
The ability to identify, access and differentiate sounds in words. In Foundations, the focus is on first sounds.
Phonemic awareness is a strong predictor of reading success, and explicit instruction in phonemic awareness fast-tracks the learn-to-read process. This means that children who demonstrate strong phonemic awareness go on to become better readers, sooner.
The ability to comprehend (listen) and apply (speak) a wide variety of words and sentence structures to facilitate meaningful communication.
Students who begin school with a relatively large vocabulary tend to learn more words, more quickly than students who begin school with a poor vocabulary. That is, knowing more words makes it easier to learn new words. Therefore, vocabulary development accelerates your child's comprehension and communication skills.
(Speaking and Listening Skills)
Teachers use extensive classroom resources in delivering the Foundations programme.
Alongside essential pre-reading skills, students develop vocabulary, comprehension and writing skills.
Foundations WorkBooks are designed as a supplementary tool to encourage independent learning while reinforcing concepts taught in the lesson.
Each student's progress is systematically monitored and recorded on a weekly basis to ensure they are on track to achieve their individual learning goals.
