English Alive - ICSE Syllabus

English Alive Module 


English Alive is designed as an intensive course, over 60 ‘contact-with-teacher’ hours complemented with specific off-class assignments to:

  • Develop comfort with the language, generating confidence in the individual

  • Improve comprehension and communication – spoken & written skills

  • Thoroughly familiarize a student with the textual/syllabus matter to gain confidence

The aim is to make an individual appreciate and use English as an effective tool, for immediate and future usage. In this process, ‘Literature’ is made relevant as a ‘mirror-of-life’ for enhancing understanding, maturity and personality.  ‘Language’, being more individualistic, provides for thinking ability, expression and fluency in writing.  The objective is to make the student self-reliant and confidently answer without resorting to ‘rote learning’.
