“Young” writers often find the 200-character or 500-character requirements of compositions overwhelming. Our Writing & Oral Programme helps to increase their confidence in essay writing and oral skills. This is accomplished by grouping them to their educational levels for better learning, expanding their vocabulary with new words from and beyond textbooks, and teaching them organising and writing skills. Reflecting our belief in “practice makes perfect”, every student has to submit a weekly composition.
