Our English curriculum comprises of an extensive and up-to-date selection of current affairs and general knowledge, to build on students’ strong understanding of their world around them. This in turn will help them express themselves better in their spoken and written English.
Our curriculum follows a 4 –week cycle where each week, there is a different focus. Students are exposed to grammar focus, vocabulary focus and comprehension focus. With continuous exposure to these components, students form a strong foundation with correct strategies and techniques to overcome even the most challenging questions. The focus lesson is used to guide students before they start their weekly practices.
We impart top-notch writing techniques to students to help them impress and stand out in their writing.
I was in cold sweat and in such great pain that I held onto my stomach and vomited.
Stimulus-based Conversation, which was previously known as ‘Oral’, is another exam component many students tend to neglect. At Just Education, we ensure that all our students are well-equipped to ace this portion.
We design our curriculum to engage students in highly-stimulating discussions on current and popular issues in society.
What are some of the popular social media tools that people use? Why are these social media tools so popular among youths today?
I have seen my eldest sister using Facebook and Instagram frequently on her laptop and mobile phone. She would upload digital images onto Facebook and share them with her friends. Sometimes, she would express her personal thoughts on current affairs and interesting reads. On Instagram, she likes to upload photos of delicious and appetising cuisines that she had for the day and share them with her friends, hoping to find like-minded friends who would join her on her next food hunt!
I think one of the main reasons for the immense popularity of such social media sites among youths is that they want to feel accepted by their peers who are active on these social media sites too. They are often pressured into using these social media sites so that they can stay connected with their friends and not feel left out.
Another reason why they turn to social media like Facebook and blogs could be to search for answers to their troubles. As they feel that they are accepted on these platforms, they turn to social media to vent their emotional stress or find answers to problems which they find difficult to confide in their family members.
The enormous changes to Singapore’s secondary English syllabus in recent years reflect a critical shift in the challenges and demands faced by Singapore’s workforce.
Recognising this, we, at Just Education, place great value in keeping our curriculum updated and in line with the examination syllabus.
Our worksheets cover all examinable components and place strong emphasis on developing both our students’ mastery of the English language as well as their grasp of current affairs.
Our readings introduce them to sophisticated writing techniques and acquaint them with the latest socio-political events in Singapore, the region, and the world. We strongly believe in getting our youths to think and comment intelligently and confidently about their place in today’s society.
