Improvement in language skills directly results in academic gains in all subjects taught in English.
The program builds reading and listening comprehension; writing, grammar, vocabulary and critical thinking skills.
Rote learning is learning without understanding – what you learn sits in your short term memory and is soon lost. Rote learning actually requires more effort! Further, students are unable to answer restructured questions because they have not processed or comprehended the text. Children who are good with math calculations start to struggle with word problems because they are unable to understand what is being asked. They are unable to apply science concepts because that too requires understanding versus definition memorisation.
Inability to decode questions is a common problem. If questions are not directly picked from text, children struggle to answer them.This is where THINK ENGLISH helps. The program helps children move from rote learning to learning with understanding. Once they are able to comprehend, they progress to building analytical and critical thinking skills. The academic gains are phenomenal.
