As parents, we all want our children to achieve academic success and reach their full potential. While marks and grades are not the only measures of a child’s potential and capabilities, they are still essential to their overall development and future opportunities.
We frequently associate academic excellence with proficiency in challenging subjects such as Maths and Science. However, academic performance depends not only on a student’s ability to comprehend complex concepts but also on their proficiency in understanding spoken and written language, as well as their capability to articulate their knowledge through both verbal and written communication.
And that’s why good English is crucial, as it serves as the primary medium of instruction in most Singapore schools.
If your child’s English language proficiency is not up to par, they may find it difficult to comprehend lessons, engage in class discussions, and effectively communicate with their teachers and classmates. Moreover, academic writing requires proper grammar, spelling, punctuation, and vocabulary, which are all components of good English.
Why Literacy Matters in Early Childhood
Early literacy has a profound impact on a child’s future success in school and beyond. Children who develop strong reading and writing skills in their early years are more likely to:
Excel academically: Children who are confident readers are more likely to perform well in all subjects, from language to science and math.
Become confident learners: When children are able to read and understand new concepts, they are more likely to enjoy learning.
Develop critical thinking skills: Reading exposes children to new ideas and perspectives, allowing them to think critically and develop their own opinion.
Communicate effectively: Children who are confident readers and writers are better equipped to express themselves and understand others.
Become future-ready: Proficiency in English is crucial in today’s globalised world. When our children grow up, they will be required to interact with people from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and English proficiency will be essential to build meaningful connections and relationships.
LCentral’s 360 Curriculum: A Pathway to Improved Academic Performance in Children
Mastering the English language can be a challenging task, especially for children who do not regularly speak English at home. Children who struggle with English may feel self-conscious and hesitant to speak in front of others.
