Pre-Uni New College Reading & Writing Course

The Recent Trends

Every year, there’s a great increase in importance on the writing component in the Selective High School Placement Test. Feedback from previous students suggests that the Reading and Writing tests are becoming more difficult and complex. In addition to this, more General Ability questions are focused towards language conventions.

English Teaches Opinions

According to English teachers, there seem to be relatively more difficulties for students whose parents come from non-English speaking backgrounds, to achieve a variety of expression and writing skills. In the case of writing tasks, we cannot expect excellent outcomes within a short period of time or with minimal practice. Therefore, we need to consider the step-by-step approach, starting from the basic levels to more advanced levels.

Pre-Uni New College is continuously designing, developing and providing the most effective programs and learning structures to enhance students’ writing skills through the periodic developmental stages. After this course work, students will be able to manage various types of writing tasks with a high level of confidence.
