English: The ability to communicate
The English subject begins with the basics of being able to read, write, spell and use correct punctuation. Students then work on developing a wider vocabulary, correct sentence structure, correct paragraph structure and the ability to identify and use various language features.
By upper school students are exposed to a wide range of text types such as novels, short stories, poems, images, advertisements, websites, movies, songs and plays. Students are expected to identify and dissect the main themes of a text and discuss these themes in various contexts. Students are also expected to analyse the various tools and techniques authors use to promote ideas, generate emotions and portray characters.
After studying a text, students are then expected to structure an essay that effectively communicates their response to the text. This takes a lot of practice. There are many skills that come together, and it is common for students to struggle.
At Allstar Learning our English tutors assist students with all these skills. We help students identify the main features and themes of texts. We get students to brainstorm all the tools and techniques used by authors to convey their desired message. We also help students develop an effective essay writing structure that they can use consistently to write strong essays and achieve top marks.
