IP English  VS  O level English

IP vs O level English.png

"What is the IP English Syllabus and how is it different from O level English?"

 

This is the most common question we get from parents and students.

 

Truth is, there is no fixed syllabus for IP English and the syllabus differs across schools.

 

It's important to understand that the end goal for IP English is the A levels since IP students do not sit for the O levels.

 

As such, our curriculum goes beyond language rules and exam drilling, to focus on skills and competencies required to excel at GP (General Paper).

This includes general knowledge in current affairs, analytical skills, the ability to formulate balanced arguments, literature analysis and higher order language skills.

 

In-class activities are also more robust, from video discussions to mini debates, to train students to think critically and express ideas coherently.

This sets the stage for a smoother transition into JC (Junior College).

Holistic Development that Promotes

Higher Order Thinking

A main advantage of the IP Program is that students can divert time saved from preparing for exams towards sharpening core skills.

To do well in the IP Program and A levels, just having a strong command of the English Language is not enough.

Extensive Knowledge of current affairs and societal issues is required to deliver compelling arguments that are supported by real life examples.

Your child should possess strong analytical skills to dissect articles and passages and convey central ideas in their own words.

These are skills that can only be acquired over time, through consistent practices.

At Ace Clinic Education, we develop your child holistically in 5 major aspects, so they are able to think critically and handle all types of questions thrown their way.

Based on the question structure, we teach them how to identify the keywords and express them succinctly, to meet marking requirements.

Advanced Vocabulary and Literary Devices IP English

Forget the mindless memorizing of long word lists.

We teach advanced vocabulary "thematically" so students know when and how to apply the "complex words" suitably under the right context.

We also guide students on the use "literary devices" to make their writing more vibrant and unique.

Your child will develop a unique writing style that leaves a lasting impression on any reader.

A Systematic and Structured Approach to Learning

A Myriad of In-class Activities that Help your Child to Excel, while Enjoying the Process of Learning. 

Structured Processes to Build Practical Skills

1. Building Practical Skills that are 'Forward Looking'

At Ace Clinic Education, we do not spend lesson time just going through questions.

Instead, we dedicate time to sharpen key skills that remain relevant even as students progress to the higher levels.

 

For example, we prepare videos and articles based on trending issues, along with customized worksheets, to stimulate a rigorous thought process through in class discussions.

We also hold debates and mini forums to strengthen students' ability to express ideas and arguments coherently. 

These activities not only increases engagement in class but also empowers students to carry this knowledge into their exams.

These knowledge and skills are crucial in the IP English Syllabus and stimulate students to think critically.

IP English Exam Techniques for Comprehension and Composition

2. Replicable Answering Techniques Across Different Question Types

The only way to score well consistently is to adopt replicable strategies that can be applied all the time, without exceptions.

This is also the reason behind the effectiveness of "Ace English Techniques".

As the saying goes: "Questions may change, but the Techniques remain the same"

Students who enroll in our Ace English Program, are well equipped with a strategy to answer all question types.

In certain instances, our techniques empower students to go above and beyond question requirements!

 

For example, in Summary writing, we teach students the techniques to identify all 10 points, even though only 8 is required. This ensures that they will never face the problem of missing pointers, which can cause a drastic loss in marks.

3. Learning Vocabulary "Thematically" for Precise Application

Many students are misguided to believe that memorizing a bunch of "complex words and phrases" and throwing them into their essays will improve their scores.

But this method commonly backfires because they are used incorrectly.

This is why we never ask students to memorize from "vocabulary lists". Instead, we teach advanced vocabulary and literary devices "thematically".

This means that students are given the context when learning words/phrases, according to popular themes tested in the exams. This ensures that they have an arsenal of vocabulary to apply appropriately under different scenarios.

Students also learn to use what is more "suitable" and not words or phrases that sound "complex".

Develop the Right Mindset for Literature

"Asking the Right Questions and Making Practical Notes"

Many students feel lost when it comes to studying "Literature".

This is hardly surprising given that it's a brand new segment under the IP English Syllabus.

To overcome this hurdle, we want to start by instilling the right "Thought Process" and mindset in our students.

In our IP English classes, we guide students to "ask the right questions" when given any literature text.

We know different schools use different literature text.

This is why we focus on the skills and thought process above anything else. Through a structured process, students will learn to analyze text, understand storylines, recognize various writing styles, interpret the deeper underlying meanings, and appreciate literature texts.

Your Child Will NOT Fear Literature Ever Again!

*BONUS*

Personalized Guidance For Different Literature Text

Interpret Literature Text (4)_edited.png

Beyond the skills taught in regular classes, we provide extra 1 to 1 consultation, before the exams, to go through the specific texts that are assigned.

These consultations are complimentary and designed to give your child personalized guidance on the books they are studying on.

Based on experience, this initiative helps students tremendously because it offer an avenue to clarify doubts, specific to what they read.
