This 18-hour course helps improve learners' understanding of how different sounds of English are formed. Through phonological awareness training, people can read words they have not seen before rather just memorising.
This course will:
- Explain why English is a difficult language to learn
- Introduce phonics to your daily lives to improve on reading, spelling and pronunciation
- Introduce the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet)
- Understand the sound of letters in English
- Pronounce and practise pronunciation - understand the importance of stress, intonation, shift, pause, etc
- Learn word formation - rather than the 'whole word' approach
18 hours (6 meetings x 3 hours each; once per week)
Instructors of the course are drawn from our panel of qualified and experienced English language teachers. Some of them are native speakers; others are local teachers with native speaker competence.
Applicants should note:
- Applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.
- Unless changes are made to the advertised details, we do not usually issue joining instructions. If your application has been accepted, you should go to the first session of the class at the time and place shown.
- No refunds or transfers to a different class will be approved.
