English is, almost certainly, the most important subject that a child can learn in school. By assuming that students will learn proper communication skills without guidance is a big mistake. Therefore, not being able to read independently affects not only the language but other subject areas as well. Thus, the goal should be to ensure that children develop strategies for comprehending a variety of texts ranging from narrative to expository. Sadly, not only do the children have no or scant exposure to English at home, it is in itself a complex language to read, and this impacts children severely in many ways — academically, socially, economically, and culturally.
Learning English requires a community, not just a classroom
Introducing f-live classes – a set of online English Classes designed for students from Nursery – Grade 6. Complimentary to the school's curriculum, these are skill-based, age-appropriate classes that assess and show transparent progress to parents through continuous communication. F-Live's approach to English is simple and guided by these principles:
- Start Early and Build Skills (age 3 to grade three)
Teach children to decode text and make meaning
- Inspiration is Everything! (focus on will building with skills)
Surround children with rich, age-appropriate literature that fosters a cultural connection
- Don’t Leave it to Chance (be systematic, extensive, explicit)
To create an internal pull for reading, children must start early, be systematic, and sustain it
- No Silos (learning is multi-dimensional)
Reading is complemented and enhanced by speaking, listening, and written expression
- Design for Sustainability and Scalability (all good work must be scaled)
Constantly innovate so that we can reach vastness and address diversity
