W-Class
This level is catered for students who demonstrate an outstanding ability to learn and think critically. In the Proud 7 W-level program, we strive to provide a supportive and challenging educational environment for students with high academic potential in the English language. Advanced concepts and skills are taught to students. Emphasis will not be put on whether something is true or false, but rather how well it can be explained and predicted. A more active approach is introduced because simply memorizing meanings and facts is not sufficient for students. Once students become more independent, they will gain a greater understanding, not just facts. Students are encouraged to reassess what they know and apply it to the future.
Beyond
This level is an intensive academic program for our advanced students. The students demonstrate high linguistic and intellectual aptitude, in which they can further challenge themselves. The enriched curriculum designed for these students allow them to practice fundamental English skills, while challenging them to think critically. With textbooks that are set at a higher reading level, students are able to have more in-depth discussions and articulate their expressions and thoughts. In the Beyond Level, our goal is to offer various styles of learning so that they are building, developing, and refining their overall English proficiency.
On Level
This level is designed for students who possess the abilities to understand concepts critically and profoundly, allowing our lessons to go into further detail and depth. The curriculum includes more discussions and different point-of-views, rather than only focusing on understanding the material itself. Most students are capable of writing using the proper structure by the time they reach this level, so their goal will be focused on the expression of their thoughts. Emphasis will also be added to accuracy in terms of grammar and the use of vocabulary. Students are encouraged to articulate their opinions, questions and comprehension of the subjects. In the On Level, our goal is to challenge the students to think critically and communicate effectively.
Approaching
This level is designed for students who already have a grasp of the basic fundamental skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Now that the training wheels have come off, each student starts to hone their skills while strengthening their weaker abilities. This enables the students to be challenged to become more independent, creative and expressive. Since the foundation has already been paved, the curriculum is tailored to fit this level of students. The students will enhance their reading skills through various novels and their listening skills with a detailed program. In the Approaching Level, our goal is to develop fluency and more active participation.
Preparatory
This level is catered for students who need to develop their reading and writing skills. Students are given student-friendly definitions and in depth explanations to build foundational skills. The main focus will be on improving decoding, comprehension, and fluency so that each student can gain valuable confidence to continue reading growth. In the Pre-course Level, our objective is to help students comfortably adjust to our program and give special care to ensure their success in the levels that proceed.
