Proficient Mother Tongue Language Communicators
The Mother Tongue Languages (MTL) department provides opportunities and platforms for pupils to use and practise the four core language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Various teaching and learning strategies are used during curriculum time to allow pupils to communicate using these core skills. Pick & Tell and Situational Dialogues are some activities which promote speaking skills and build confidence in pupils.Intensive Reading and Extensive Reading Programmes also help to promote the reading habit in pupils and widen their vocabulary use.

Cultural Exposure
MTL Fortnight activities, Cultural Camp activities and external competitions also provide the platforms for pupils to appreciate their unique tradition and culture while at the same time enable them to develop the national identity.
