Learning Never Stops

Recognising that language is a powerful tool that connects people, the Empowering Mums: English Club (EC) is a free English curriculum for low-income mums of Singaporean families. The programme aims to empower mums to gain control of foundational English skills for daily conversations, with the theme centering on the neighbourhood in a housing estate.

The programme covers five proficiency levels of learning according to the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) standards. Various learning tools and activities ensure an engaging experience tried and tested in previous terms.

Classes are held with trained volunteers for 2 hours each session. Childminding services (for children above 2 years old) will be provided on a needs basis with reading and play elements.
