The English language syllabus for primary schools aims to equip learners with basic skills and knowledge of the English language so as to enable them to communicate, both orally and in writing, in and out of school.
By the end of the primary school, learners should be able to
i. listen to and understand simple spoken English in certain given contexts;
ii. ask and answer questions, speak and express themselves clearly to others using simple language;
iii. acquire good reading habits to understand, enjoy and extract information from a variety of texts;
iv. write legibly and express ideas in simple language; and
v. show an awareness and appreciation of moral values as well as love for the nation.
