Course Description

With SBC's Junior Academic Discovery course, students with an Upper-Intermediate level of English and higher have an alternative to typical English language courses. The course promotes language learning by including topics such as history, geography, English literature, and science into the curriculum. This kind of instruction teaches both the English language and vocabulary, grammar, and language skills related to a number of disciplines at the same time. Students gain confidence and improve their ability to communicate in English on a variety of topics they study at school.

Students will study a diverse curriculum, ranging from well-known works of literature to fascinating historical events, all while using the same communicative technique as in SBC's General English classes. Students are encouraged to be creative in the classroom and participate in discussions, debates, improvisation, and other topic-based activities. These lessons emphasize communication so that students can apply what they've learned by conversing with classmates.

Students learn best when they are actively putting language into practice, according to SBC. Lessons are designed to be communicative as a result of this. This guarantees that students are continuously utilizing English in an engaged manner, improving not only their language skills but also their confidence in the language.

Students will participate in a variety of fascinating challenges as well as weekly projects throughout the program. Presentations, class competitions, theater plays, team challenges, and creative writing exercises are all examples of projects.
