With the expansion of Japanese class, students are making friends with common interests as well as partners overcoming challenges. As the saying goes, friend in need is friend indeed. It is very common to see that students are spontaneously pairing up to practice dialogues, checking spellings and pronunciations of Japanese vocabularies, especially when the exam is around the corner. There is nothing more inspiring and touching to see them gather up together and work hard to achieve a better grade.
Beyond the class, greetings in Japanese, laughing at interesting Japanese phrases and even eagerness to express oneself in Japanese can be easily detected here and there. I have seen so many friendships built up because of Japanese course.
Y11 students in Japanese are facing the IGCSE exam in June and fully prepared for the challenge by achieving decent grades in the mock exam. They have developed sophisticated skills in reading and listening. Almost all of them have scored around 90% in reading and listening. With consistent improvement in writing and speaking, they stand a high chance to reach the top grades in IGCSE.
