Crown Prince Academy

English Language - Junior High School

Subject Overview

The aim of the syllabus is to help students develop effective oral and written communication skills in standard English and to lay the foundation for the SHS course. Teaching concentrates on equipping students with basic reading and writing skills. As part of this process, the mechanics of the language including spelling, grammar and punctuation are covered.

The course is also crafted to develop the habit of reading texts other than for academic purposes, thus broadening the scope of comprehension, self-expression and appreciation of literary works and their authors.
