Every unit has an assessment lesson where students will be evaluated on how well they have progressed in their English learning. Based on a student’s assessment outcome, our system applies a unique set of evaluation standards to provide a personalized score for each core English skill.
Each student gets a complete, individualized breakdown of progress to see areas of improvement, areas of achievement, and a total overall score of English performance.
Along with the progress of their English learning, students will get helpful resources aimed to improve their skills and boost their English learning to the next level.
Transitioning from language exposure to application allows for Grade 1 students to begin practicing their speaking and listening skills to answer questions and use vocabulary words learned in class. Reading and writing activities are now included to help accumulate the knowledge they are acquiring in each class.

Applying all four core skills into daily life encourages students to apply what they are learning in class to things they see and do every day. Your child will have built up their skill to a level where they are no longer applying their language skills from a memorization standpoint but will use their skills to form organic sentences, express their opinions, comprehend basic reading prompts, and expand writing basic coherent sentences.
