Film & Media Appreciation

In this modern age of technology, we are constantly surrounded by various forms of media. From commercials, to music, film and poems, every form of media emanates a language learning opportunity. Through a refined appreciation of each type of media, we will be able to enrich our eloquence and fluency in the English Language. 

In this course, students will be taught to analyse the language used in various forms of media for specific purposes and functions. With this analytical approach in the bag, coupled with a wise consumption of media, students will take the first step to becoming innovative wordsmiths. Suitable for students Primary 4 and above.

Students will have a task at the end of every lesson, they can choose to submit, but the homework will not be marked. Teachers will give an overview and maybe display good works. For some lessons, they will also be required to watch films or short films prior to the class.

Transitioning to a new normal: Tenopy is giving back to our student community by reducing the usual charges of our holiday workshops by 50%.
