English Reading and Writing 2 - Next Level - in Zurich

Course Overview

"Reading and Writing 2" builds upon the skills developed in Level 1, advancing children's reading and writing abilities. At this stage, students are familiar with phonic sounds and can read short, three-letter words. Many are also beginning to read or can already read short sentences and stories. This course aims to further enhance their literacy through engaging activities and structured learning, laying the groundwork for more advanced skills.

Learning Objectives

  1. Enhanced Phonemic Awareness:

    • Strengthen the ability to decode words using phonics.

    • Introduce and practice blends, digraphs, and more complex phonetic patterns.

  2. Reading Fluency:

    • Improve reading speed and accuracy.

    • Develop expressive reading skills and proper intonation.

  3. Comprehension Skills:

    • Enhance understanding of texts through questioning and discussion.

    • Identify main ideas, details, and sequence of events in stories.

  4. Expanded Vocabulary:

    • Learn new words and phrases to enrich language use.

    • Practice using new vocabulary in context through speaking and writing.

  5. Writing Development:

    • Write simple sentences.

 

Course Activities

  • Phonics Drills: Engaging exercises to reinforce complex phonetic patterns and blends.

  • Vocabulary Games: Fun activities to introduce and practice new vocabulary words.

  • Creative Projects: Arts and crafts, storytelling, and role-play to integrate reading and writing skills in a multi-sensory approach.

We employ a variety of interactive and multi-sensory teaching methods to ensure that learning remains fun and engaging. Our experienced native speaker instructors provide personalized attention and support, fostering a positive and encouraging environment where children feel confident to explore and improve their reading and writing skills.

 

Goals

By the end of this course, children will have significantly improved their reading fluency, comprehension, and writing abilities. They will be able to read more complex texts with confidence, understand and discuss stories, and write short sentences independently. This solid foundation will prepare them for more advanced literacy skills in future learning stages.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Reading & Writing

The teachers are great. The atmosphere is great. And my kid is actually learning to read and write. So glad we found you- she keeps asking when the next class is on. That’s got to be the best feedback.
