English

Through the teaching and learning of English Language in JSPS we hope to nurture a community of engaged learners who are Empathetic 

Communicators, Discerning Readers and Creative Inquirers. To do that we will focus on developing 21st century competencies through 

the teaching of English Language, paying increased attention to Multiliteracies, Metacognitive skills and Exploratory Talk.

Programmes and Activities

The English Department has adopted the 3S approach - Support, Strengthen and Stretch in customising programmes and activities targeting

programmes encourage the use of English Language through listening, speaking, reading and writing.
