DEVELOPING CONFIDENCE EARLY AT LORNA WHISTON
Since 1980, Lorna Whiston has helped students discover their voice and confidence in the English language. With interactive classes that engage students in listening, speaking, reading and writing in English, students are groomed to develop their own voice and confidence in communication.
Children between the ages of four and six can attend intensive language classes at Lorna Whiston. These wonderful programmes for preschoolers encourage the all-round academic, social, physical and emotional development of young children to ensure that they get the best possible start to their education in the English language.
Intensive language programmes at Lorna Whiston place significant emphasis on the development of early reading and writing skills. With a wide range of stimulating resources including big books, interactive learning games and educational computer software, each child grasps the essential foundations of literacy and numeracy in English. Children are also encouraged to express themselves and develop their natural creative flair through art and craft activities, music and drama.
Lorna Whiston also offers a wide range of weekly English language courses that are approved by the Malaysian Ministry of Education. Catering for students aged 4 to 18 years old, the courses include English Language Development and Extension, Public Speaking as well as Speech and Drama.
Lorna Whiston recently introduced a new programme called Advanced Language Digital Content for secondary students. The programme will cover a range of areas, including the ability to generate ideas, develop online content, become an imaginative problem solver and deliver persuasive, polished presentations. This helps build creativity, personal learning and thinking skills.
All new students are assessed to ensure that they are appropriately placed for classes based on their capabilities and skills. All classes are taught by fully qualified and highly dedicated teachers who are native English speakers from Europe, North America and Australia.
Mastering any language is a dynamic process that requires a multi-faceted approach to ensure students maintain their momentum and interest in developing their skills. Students at Lorna Whiston enjoy optimum teacher-student interaction with small and friendly study groups. Each class will only accommodate a maximum of 12 students.
The centres are located in Taman Tun Dr Ismail and Taman Melawati. Each centre is fully equipped with extensive libraries and the latest technology that provide students with resources to inspire their creativity and self-expression.
