iEnglish is a series of six books written in accordance with the latest MOE syllabus. Specifically conceptualized with today’s media-savvy child in mind, each book comprises practice papers, oral practices, as well as a companion DVD. Each practice paper has been thoughtfully authored and edited to:
- Enable students to practice and reinforce fundamental and higher-order skills in comprehension, inference and writing.
- Introduce students to challenging vocabulary and a variety of ways in which questions can be asked.
- Expose students to current issues through a variety of informative texts on different subjects.
Oral Practices have been included in this series to remind students to consciously practise for this component of assessment as well. Students are encouraged to use the text passages in each practice paper to practice reading aloud. The prompts and suggested answers provided for the picture description and discussion components, as well as tips further serve as a guide for students to hone their oral skills.
Answers are included at the back of each book together with a Marking Scheme. Formulated with reference to actual marking schemes of school papers, this provides parents with a guide on how marks should be awarded and deducted, in line with school standards.
Model Essays are available online as examples of how good compositions can be written. These supplement the planning, writing and editing techniques presented in the companion DVD.
Integrated Learning is a key feature of this series. Recognizing that children have different learning styles and learn best when more than one of their five senses is engaged, the companion DVD, which can be purchased separately at a special price of $4.90, contains audiovisual presentations by experienced teachers that promise to be entertaining and memorable. The presentations include step-by-step teaching of comprehension and composition writing skills, as well as handy tips, reminders and shortcuts, amongst others.
