Secondary School

The key to success in secondary school is for students to engage with the subject they’re learning. The complexity of the ideas at this level means that students can no longer memorise their answers from a book, but must learn to think for themselves.

i-Learner strives to provide students with the skills to do just this. Young adults taking Classical Chinese, Applied Critical Thinking and our specialised English and Chinese DSE courses, for example, will master the skills needed to succeed in secondary school and beyond.
