English Alive is designed as an intensive course which contains over 60 hours of ‘contact-with-teacher’, complemented with specific off-class assignments to:
-Develop comfort with the language, generating confidence in the individual
-Improve comprehension and communication – spoken & written skills
-Thoroughly familiarize a student with the textual/syllabus material to gain confidence
The aim is to make an individual appreciate and use English as an effective tool, for immediate and future usage. In this process, ‘Language’, being more individualistic, provides for thinking ability, expression and fluency in writing, which aids in overall personality development for kids. The objective is to make the student self-reliant and confidently answer without resorting to ‘rote learning’.
This course is taught by Mrs Sharmishta Guha and will include a Live Class every Wednesday from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm supplemented by class assignments, reading material, past papers, model questions and MCQs/tests distributed every week. Unlike generic English classes for kids, this course is geared towards Class VII and VIII, ICSE Board only.
Admission to this course is strictly based upon an interview/interaction of students and their parents with Mrs Guha through an interactive session. Interested parents/students may contact Cedarwood for details.
