Intensive English Camp
A strong, engaging beginning sets the tone for the Composition writing and determines the content. Through activities, participants will identify what makes each beginning interesting in the examples given and practice writing their own beginnings that will hook readers.
Through activities, participants attempt to use context clues to figure out the meaning of an unfamiliar word they come across in their reading. They have to bear in mind that context clues are the words, phrases, and sentences surrounding an unfamiliar word that can give hints or clues to its meaning.
Participants will look at different formats of combining sentences e.g. using a participle, a preposition with noun, adverbial phrases, etc. Participants will try combining some sentences in given practice exercises.
Through activities, participants will look at making connections in their reading, asking relevant questions, visualizing and using mental imagery, making inferences and determining important facts in the stories given as comprehension exercises.
