What is ELGA?
At LEAD, students don’t learn English as a subject, they learn it as a Skill. The heart of the English Language and General Awareness (ELGA) lies in its skill-based classrooms where students of various age groups learn together.
Across our schools, students have seen a growth of 1.8 years within one academic year.
ELGA constitutes of five primary components
It is a way of teaching children how to read and write. Phonics also helps in improving their reading fluency and pronunciation.
It helps children read better and develop a strong vocabulary. Students start recognising full words while reading new text.
It helps students to build the ability to comprehend what they read or listen to. Comprehension helps them understand new ideas, concepts and opinions.
It helps students convey the precise meaning while writing. The focus is on understanding usage and practice.
The focus of writing is to enable students to express themselves freely. Speaking, on the other hand, helps enhance their confidence.
ELGA ensures that children learn as per their level & pace
Every child learns uniquely and at LEAD we not only understand this, but also celebrate it. Our ELGA program is designed in such a way that every child learns English and grows one level at a time. The entire curriculum is split into 21 levels and is fully based on their skill and understanding rather than grade or age.
Skill and level-based program
ELGA program’s outcomes are based on the NCERT and Singapore curriculum. It is a one-of-its-kind level-based English program specially designed for Indian students.Know More
General awareness and values
Each level of the programme has different units and each unit has a specific theme. This helps students deepen their understanding of a specific theme which helps them apply these skills to their everyday life.
Special focus on usage and practice
The ELGA program ensures that there are various avenues through which students get to practise English daily, be it at home, in school or in other social settings.
Parent, Academic Heights Public School
My daughter got an opportunity to participate in a National-level competition. She won the storytelling contest and nothing can make us prouder. When she speaks flawlessly in English, it brings tears to my eyes. This could not have been possible without LEAD’s ELGA program. Not only English, all subjects are taught keeping the real world application in mind. I am confident that my daughter has a bright future and her knowledge and skills will take her places. I am proud to be Ananya’s mother.
