Exam Strategies Workshop by The English Channel

Bridging cultures through language with the Speak Good English Movement 2012

The English Channel (TEC) is partnering Speak Good English Movement (SGEM) 2012 for the first time this year to help further the movement’s cause of encouraging better communication through the English language. TEC will conduct a series of workshops focused on the main components of the O Level English examination, including essay writing, reading comprehension and spoken English. In conjunction with the launch of SGEM 2012, TEC will start off with a workshop for 200 underprivileged students from community organisations such as SINDA and Mendaki.

Commenting on the importance of helping students for the O Level English exams, Ms Lorraine Tham, founder of The English Channel said, “The O Level English exam is the final key assessment for students before they move on to tertiary education. How well they perform affects their confidence and interest in using the language beyond their studies. Helping students do well in their O Level English exam gives them the confidence to use the language in their everyday lives, and the more they use the language, the better they will get at it”.

The first of a series of 2-hour workshops will be held on Saturday 29th September 2012 at Queenstown Public Library. Each workshop will accommodate 200 students. It will comprise of a 45-minute lecture, a 45-minute hands-on session and a 30-minute Q&A.
