Basic English Classes at Our Church 基础英文课程

Our Basic English classes  provide opportunities for our neighbourhood residents and foreign workers to learn basic English. Started in 2008 with this as one of our objectives, the classes have seen increase in student enrolment over the years. Our teachers and helpers ( registration and logistics) are volunteers from both our English and Mandarin worship services. Many of them have full-time jobs in the day but are willing to give up one evening each week on Tuesday  to volunteer as teachers and helpers.
我们的基础英文课程旨在为我们的邻里住户们及外籍工作人士提供学习英语的机会。自从2008年开课以来,报名人数逐年增加。 现任的老师及其他辅助人员均为教会英文部及华语部的志愿者们。他们中很多人有全职工作,但是仍然愿意奉献每个星期二的晚上来为学生们授课。

Classes are held every Tuesday evening at church between 8 pm and 9.30 pm during school terms. We follow the school terms of Singapore schools and  therefore have two long breaks in June and December. A year is divided into two semesters – the first semester starts in January and the second semester  in July. Registration is open in January and July , i.e. there are two admissions of students. A registration fee of $45 is collected at the beginning of each semester. Free dinner is provided on request.
课程是在学期内每个星期二的晚上8点到9点半在教会进行。我们按照新加坡学校的学期来安排课程,所以六月和十二月会有两个长假期。 一年分为两个学期-第一学期一月开始,第二学期是七月开始。报名在一月和七月开放,也就是说有两次的学生入学。每学期开始的时候,我们会收取$45元的报名费。免费的晚餐将按照需求提供。

 Three levels are available and a new student will be given an oral assessment to find out his level of competency in the English Language so that he is placed in the right level.  Lessons are designed to facilitate learning for students, some of whom are starting from scratch. Learning is geared towards interactive learning to encourage students to speak to the teacher and to their fellow classmates. Volunteer teachers use visual aids, games and role-plays to facilitate better learning. Informal assessments are carried out during each semester.

A Completion of Course Celebration, held at the end of every semester, is considered as an important event by teachers and students. Besides receiving  certificates and awards of different categories, students present items, such as presenting songs , reciting poems and skits.
