Content and Language Mastery


IP students will be introduced to a new component — the application question — and trained in the examination requirements for the component.

Students will improve their grammar knowledge and skills by practising grammar drills, editing and sentence reconstruction exercises. Students will also learn how sentence structure, tone and punctuation shapes meaning in a variety of texts.

Comprehension, summary and critical thinking passages which cover a wide range of general knowledge topics and current affairs help students develop a global perspective and build their content knowledge for use in their essays. These topics include:

  • technology and science
  • global issues and social trends
  • case studies of inspirational figures

Skills and Techniques


Build on essential skills for mastering the key examinable components of summary, comprehension and composition. These include:

  • honing summary skills by learning to paraphrase ideas and concepts rather than paraphrasing word for word
  • improving comprehension skills through error analysis and answer precision
  • building writing skills to show maturity of thought and nuance in writing

Students are also trained in their time management skills through practice tests in simulated exam conditions.

"Without my teachers, I would never dare to dream of where I am today."


DENISE LAI
TLL Alumnus (P4 to JC2)

 

 

"A determined and kind teacher who never gave up on her students, Ms Shu truly inspired me and all my classmates to work harder and never give up. Without any expectation of recognition, Ms Shu has been our light when we were shrouded in darkness.

I can confidently say that Ms Shu is definitely the best teacher that I have ever met, and I believe that most of my success can be credited to her and TLL.

Once again, I would like to express my gratitude to TLL and my teachers for never giving up on me. Without them, I would never dare to dream of where I am today, and I would never have achieved the results I have today."
