Junior Secondary School English Conversation Zoom Class

The Zoom Class Host will conduct a Zoom class with a group of 4 students (aged 13) on topics that matter to them.

Project Details

What we need

  • Lead a class of 4 pre-teen students in a meaningful English Conversation Class on Saturday mornings 9:30 am-12:00 noon
  • Study lesson plans and learning materials before the class
  • Correct students' writing via WhatsApp for their presentation in the class


We kicked off this initiative last year with great success for the junior secondary school students. Through this program, students build up their confidence in both English speaking and writing while learning social-emotional skills to succeed in school and life.

What we have

1) A comprehensive and interactive curriculum2) A compact class structure - pls click https://booksnbeyondreadin.wixsite.com/ctmzoom for details

Why this is important

The most challenging part of working with youth, let alone English language learning, is getting a young person to engage in meaningful conversations. Instead of a place of authority and formality, we take the attitude of genuine care and interest in them in a way where the conversation would matter and appeal to them to converse in comfort.
