Show English is a uniquely written original course designed by CECES. The course is divided into 3 stages: “Kindergarten”, “Junior Primary” and “Higher Primary”. At each stage, students will learn English vocabulary and sentence patterns in an all-English learning environment according to the level of the students. The goal is to inspire children to think, associate and express themselves in English using “Show and Tell”.
In the “Kindergarten stage”, with the help of various different themes dealing with the things that students often encounter in their lives, Show English dares students to express what they see and hear, thereby increasing their confidence in English conversation.
In the “Lower Primary Stage”, students have mastered a certain level of reading and conversation skills. At this stage, the course will strengthen the structure, grammar and grammar usage so that students can learn to use English correctly.
The “Upper Primary Stage” focuses on open-ended topics, so that students can improve their English skills and highlight their personal ideas when expressing themselves or communicating and discussing in English. Instructors will also ask students to approach topics and issues from different perspectives to stimulate students and hone their critical thinking abilities.
Many school children are already very rich in vocabulary, and in terms of reading, can use the skills they’ve mastered to spell some new words that are very challenging or even unlearned. But when some similar or new vocabulary is understood through listening, students may not be able to spell it completely. There are many different phonics methods in the market, such as: “Jolly Phonics”, “Letterland”, “RWI Phonics”, etc. CECES also has a unique English pinyin course.
This course focuses primarily on improving three abilities of students:
- “Accurate tone”
- “Clear Ending”
- “Listening to string characters”
Engaging the whole brain, deconstructing the sounds of words, combining and blending letters and sounds and playing verbal/ phonetic games (e.g. games using onomatopoeia) all work to enable students to strengthen their ability to string words together. Furthermore, they should gain the ability to cooperate in “group reading”, as well as participate in singing games and other language activities, making it easier for students overall to master the skills of phonics and reading.
This course is designed for students who have mastered a certain level of English conversation ability.
The aim of the course is to use drama to train children’s “emotional depth”, “expression skills”, “interpretation of voice” and “speaking rhythm”, so that when students participate in performances or conversations, they are able to express themselves coherently and smoothly.
In addition, since the courses are conducted on different themes, such as “role playing”, “dialog” and “group performance”, students can play different roles while simultaneously learning to understand the importance of teamwork, discipline and patience.
Cambridge English has become one of the courses that many parents choose to enroll in. A likely reason for its popularity is that Cambridge English has an internationally recognized YLE exam certificate. Many parents can provide students with a richer résumé when they apply for primary school.
We use textbooks published by “Cambridge English” Publishing House, which are closely resemble the YLE test content, sentence structure, and test questions, so as to ensure good results for students in the YLE exam.
