Unleashing Children’s Creativity

RWI by Oxford equips children with the necessary skills that are needed for lifelong self-learning. Phonics makes reading and writing of new words easy. The course materials help children learn new sentence structures, develop new ideas and cultivate creativity. Greta is an RWI by Oxford student. Let’s take a look at her journey through the programme:

Greta started in Elementary Level at the age of 4.5. In Green Storybook 5, she was able to comprehend plots fully and apply sentence structures learnt into her writing task. She has also managed to apply words such as “villain” and “naughty” which are advanced for her age into her writing.

In Orange Storybook 9 at Intermediate Level, Greta was able to write a descriptive poem based on the story.

Greta was then able to relate her personal experience to one of the characters in Yellow Storybook 2 at Advanced level, and express her own feelings in her writing.
Parents Sharing
have chosen RWI by Oxford for Zoey because I wanted her vocabulary bank to be enriched. I am pleased that Zoey has learnt to use a variety of words to express herself since taking the course.  Her teacher is very patient and helpful, so Zoey has never felt any pressure attending the classes. In fact, RWI by Oxford has become Zoey’s favourite course!

Hollis started learning phonics in his kindergarten, but his learning progress appeared to be slow in a large class. After he took up RWI by Oxford, the blending and segmenting skills taught have not only helped improve his spelling and writing skills, but has also accelerated his learning progress. He is now able to spell words that he has not yet learnt while applying his English knowledge naturally.
