CREATIVE WRITING PROGRAMME

Is your child finding it difficult to complete a composition in school? Do they struggle to come up with a storyline that answers the question, or use the appropriate vocabulary in their writing?

At The Alternative Story, we train our students to write well by guiding them through model compositions. We break down the plot devices and language used in the compositions, and at the same time, give them an understanding of what it takes to score well in their exams.

Students in this course will write up to FOUR compositions within our 2-day programme. Compositions taught will provide them with a depth of topics and help build up their “bank” of stories for their future examinations.

Give your child the confidence they need for their Paper 1 examinations – sign up now!

TESTIMONIES

JT2_1678.JPG
My child first attended the Holiday Programme and enjoyed the class so much that he requested us to sign him up for the regular class.

Because of the interesting lessons, my son enjoys going for lessons every week. Through the lessons, I noticed a great improvement in his writing skills. In addition to his list of vocabulary improving, his writing style showed that he is more creative and he is able to plan and formulate the plot in a clear and logical manner.

Ashley enjoyed her time during the Holiday Programme with her teacher, and hence I decided to sign up for the regular classes in Parkway Centre with the same teacher. She found lessons fun and enjoyable, but at the same time her teacher managed to be firm with the students.

Ashley herself also described TAS as instrumental to her improvement. We are very thankful to TAS and her teacher for helping her in her English language.
