Berlitz's English courses aim to build a strong foundation in:
|textual analysis skills|
|good study habit|
In Year 9-10, students are exposed to the literature and critical thinking that is required of them in later years, ensuring their early learning contributes to their familiarity and confidence when they study English at HSC level. Students who begin engaging in their study seriously early on achieve higher results at the end of Year 12 whilst our Year 9-10 English courses are planned carefully with the HSC in mind.
In our English courses, students are widely exposed to writing techniques in a variety of contexts and subject areas. Essay writing assignments are compulsory in most subjects, thus proficiency in Writing is advantageous across disciplines. Essay writing is an essential skill for years 7-12. This new course will help students develop the necessary skills to compose first-class responses. Over the ten week course, we will focus on:
Introduction to various genres
Developing effective structures
Building useful vocabulary
Recognising and analysing literary techniques
Creating and sustaining a logical argument
How to quote and reference
The course will focus on the English curriculum but it will also be relevant to many other subjects such as History (Ancient and Modern), Studies of Religion, Geography, Business Studies, Legal Studies, PDHPE and other courses which require essay responses.
Year 7 and Year 8 courses: The early years of high school are crucial in developing fundamental mathematical ability and algebraic thinking. If students learn how to think and work mathematically in these critical years, they become equipped with the skills needed for better understanding in Mathematics in the senior years. Students need to become more confident as the transition from primary to high school mathematics is quite significant. In this course we teach concept by concept and build the foundation of high school mathematics. Students become more confident as they overcome the difficulties in mathematics.
Year 9 and Year 10 courses: Our Year 9 and Year 10 courses focus on the conceptual understanding of all Mathematics areas in Stage 5 to ensure that students are fully confident in their mathematics ability. Our courses give students a head start for Year 11 Mathematics.
We also offer tutoring services for assisting students complete their homework. Subjects can be varied, including English, Mathematics, Physic, Chemistry, and so on.
