Explorers is a post-elementary level English program for teenagers aged 12-15 years old. In teaching teenage students, sparking students' curiosity and desire to learn is one of the main driving forces which can enhance and facilitate the learning process. Our curriculum is designed to stimulate curiosity through interesting content via impactful videos, visual images and 'real world' content on global themes.
Such contents and themes are utilized to present the students with more intensive activities to improve the four English language skills i.e. listening, speaking, reading comprehension and writing.
Youth culture today is visually oriented and teenagers are easily bored by material that is not visually attractive. In Explorers, the Discovery Education videos and images in the lessons have been chosen to appeal to young students.
Elaborations in discussion, question and answer, presentation, writing and reporting, analyzing texts and videos are conducted to improve students’ English language skills as well as their reasoning and critical thinking.
With our interactive learning format, various interactive activities are presented including those incorporating digital technologies, thus will enhance our students' learning experience and effectiveness.
A wide variety of themes are used in the program such as natural history,inspiring personal stories, unusual lifestyles, international festivals and customs, and other cultural, environmental, social, educational and human interest themes. These will teach the students about the world around them through the medium of English, whilst also promoting values such as cultural awareness and social responsibility.
