Suitable for IP1 & IP2 Students

Acquire the Skills to Tackle the Language Arts
(Dramas Analysis + Unseen Prose/Poetry)

Struggling With 'Language Arts' Under the IP English Syllabus?
This Workshop Can Change That.

Improve 2 Grades for PSLE English

Learn to Appreciate the Language Arts and Acquire the Exams Skills to Answer Questions

The Language Arts is daunting because many students are not sure what to expect and how to "study" for it.


For example, an unseen prose looks like a comprehension, but the text given is unlike what students are used to.

In this workshop, we tackle three key areas of 'Language Arts' that are common across the IP Schools - Dramas, Unseen Poetry and Unseen Proses.

We take you through potential questions you will see and the analytical skills that are required to dissect and break down questions. You can expect guided examples from various literature texts, poetry of different genres and proses written in various styles.


While we do not have time to cover everything in depth, you will develop an analytical mindset and exam skills to appreciate the Language Arts and do better in the upcoming WAs!
