Reading, Reading, and More Reading!

Success on the IGCSE and OIB depends, to great extent, on a student's fluency and range of vocabulary.  There is no better way to improve one's fluency in English than by reading.  Students MUST get in the habit of regular reading: not only novels, but also news articles (eg. Guardian website), short stories, biographies, history, travel writing, etc.

You may also enjoy exploring podcasts on BBC radio about topics and authors you will be studying on the SIS programme:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio . Another source for general culture and current issues is NPR Podcasts: http://www.npr.org/podcasts/ .

With all best wishes for an enjoyable summer from the English Department,

Betty Lau

Head of English
