Our Summer Intensive 2020 promotes reading for pleasure. Reading for pleasure helps improve all aspects of authentic English language use – in particular, vocabulary, spelling, grammar, and writing. Throughout the intensive students will be introduced to the life, times and works of a major British author. The Primary level will focus on Roald Dahl’s tremendous and fun-filled stories and poems including James and the Giant Peach and The Fantastic Mr Fox; the Upper Primary will delve into the classical fantasies of the Middle Earth in J.R.R. Tokien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings; and Secondary students will concentrate on the mysteries and deductions of Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. Students will be engaged in tasks based on the characters and themes of these books. These tasks will only develop their communicative language skills and confidence, but also offer further opportunities to explore other relevant content.
