English Language Courses for Students from Affiliated Secondary Schools
The English Language and Linguistics (ELL) section of the English Department in CJC conducts English Language workshops for students from our affiliated secondary schools. These interactive workshops are run over the span of three weeks in July and comprise lessons that are carried out by our ELL teachers. We hope to share our passion for the English language and encourage more students to feel the same way about English. Students learn about how linguistic features, such as lexis, grammar and syntax, are used in genres, such as advertisements, newspaper and magazine articles, to achieve intended effects on the audience. Other topics that are taught include multi-modality and the role of Singlish in Singapore. We also help students in developing communication skills for interviews and the writing of personal statements. Studying English grammar can be fun!
