Every three weeks students have the opportunity to choose a new afternoon Option class. They often ask their teachers what they should consider when choosing an Option. Here is my advice:
- Choose a skill area that you feel the least confident in, rather than the one you enjoy the most.
- Remember that you can choose a skill level that is higher or lower than your morning class.
- However, choose a
level that is ‘attainable’. Don’t choose an advanced level speaking class if you are in a pre intermediate morning class.
- Don’t forget to make three choices in order of preference, 1-2-3 on the form. If you don’t get your first preference this round, you will be given priority next time.
- If you are a long-student, don’t keep choosing the same skill area. Choose a new skill area each time or try a ‘fun’ class such as ‘English in the Kitchen or ‘Singlish‘ every once in a while.
