“My son always liked reading and writing but the unique Language Arts Program at Glendale turned the ‘like’ into love. I have never seen him so excited to do the lessons, before.” - Dr. Manoj Malwiya father of Manav Malwiya Grade 2
A language-rich environment at Glendale forms a solid foundation for children from elementary school. They are addressed with a rich vocabulary and are encouraged to express themselves through the medium of language. Glendale is one of the first schools in Hyderabad to tread a path rarely taken by setting up a department dedicated to the creative use of language thus making a deliberate effort to make each English Language Arts class cherished by every child.
The endeavor of Language Arts is not only to stimulate the interest of the learner but also to sustain it, ensuring that the language is effectively used. The four components of Language Arts are Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking.
Reading is a skill that forms the most important facet of learning: phonetics, sight reading and Comprehension enhance the confidence of students. They consciously become competent readers which automatically helps them in academic progress. By following a structured reading program, students are encouraged to become fluent readers and thus foster the love for reading.
Students in our classes explore the different types of writing- ranging from narrative, descriptive, expository essays to letters and poetry. Students learn to organize their thoughts and to match their personal style using the tools of creative writing to learn the art of expression through words. In this way children are groomed to become proficient writers.
Listening and Speaking
When children hear the spoken language in the form of stories, dialogues, speeches and role plays they not only learn new words but also proper diction, intonation and pronunciation. Opportunities are provided for children to speak and practice articulation and imbibe communication confidence. All of these activities help students to master the art of communication.
