ILC is no just a centre for adults or adolescents. We cater for young children too, specifically primary school children who are looking to learn the English language to help better prepare them for the future. By taking this course, your child can not only build their language skills but, they can also learn to become more confident in real life conversations.
Our primary school level English course mainly caters for children who are either currently studying or planning to study at any primary school here in Malaysia or those who are simply visiting with their parents and wish to advance their skills further before returning to their home country.
Our teachers are well-equipped to provide stimulating and engaging lessons that will help your child better develop and advance to more experienced course levels. Through our interactive lessons that focus on each individual child progressing as quickly as possible, they will develop reading, speaking, listening and writing skills. Our curriculum is made up of the following lessons that are designed to help you child better their English :
One of the most important aspects of learning English is literature. It is essential to help children become confident writers and readers in addition to improving their creative and grammar skills. We have tasked multiple proficient readers to work with each child in order to help them better their reading and conversational skills while also learning to apply lessons to real life scenarios.
We have also adopted a pronunciation program that is commonly taught in government schools across Australia to help learners understand English spelling, tones and letter writing. Beginning with visual words, each lesson will progress efficiently, ensuring that each child fully comprehends course material before progressing.
In addition to the above lessons, we also include YLE exam samples to help any children who plan on sitting for the exam at some point. ILC is also prepared to help you child take the exam with the help of our partners.
Because we care about the progress of your child, we carry out regular assessments to determine how well each child is advancing. Each week-end, students are rated out of 5 stars based on their performance in writing, speaking, reading and listening. No to worry, ILC’s assessment is not designed to demotivate your child but rather, offer them encouragement and help them out in areas they are struggling. In addition to this, our teachers provide students with 7 to 10 personal goals that children should aim to achieve. This way, each child can monitor their own progress and motivate themselves to succeed.
