  • OUR CURRICULUM STRUCTURE

Three Core Stages, Eight English Proficiencies

Protostar Education’s curriculum is exclusively developed by a team of professional teachers and our British doctoral education consultant. The course nurtures children’s eight comprehensive reading and writing abilities, gradually beginning with the most basic natural phonics. When your children graduate from our curriculum, they will be confident of English either they are in a local school or in an international school.

  • PHASE ONE

    SUPER PHONICS

    CURRICULUM

The progressive pedagogy of “phoneme or phoneme-cluster- word- clause” effectively facilitates spelling words, reading short sentences and describing pictures under the instruction from our professional foreign teachers. This stage lays the foundation for the development of reading and writing skills by establishing a solid print and phonemic awareness.
  • PHASE TWO

    LEVELED READING

    CURRICULUM

‘Directed Reading Thinking Activity (DRTA)’ pedagogy together with the supplement of in-class interactive reading activities and after-class exercises initiate the cognitive transformation of a word from its form to its meaning which shapes students into a “reader with thoughts”. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) content is also embedded throughout the curriculum to arouse children’s curiosity and to enhance their professional knowledge.
  • PHASE THREE

    GUIDED WRITING

    CURRICULUM

With our exclusively designed, 10-step targeted training and the interactive advantage of live classes, children’s structural organization and writing style will be improved simultaneously during this stage. The design begins with basic writing skills, which transitions to creative thinking for writing to help children overcome the dilemma of “Chinglish.” Together with the professional writing training at the latter stage guides children to speak and think with English in all circumstances confidently.
  • OUR TEACHING STYLE

Advantages of Small Classes

Each 40-minutes “one-to-four” live class genuinely replicates genuine class activities of international schools under the principles of “Peer Pressure”, “Multimodality” and “Implicit Feedback” to stimulate children’s potential in language learning.

  • PEER  EFFECT
  • A unique class allocation policy has been introduced to encourage healthy competition among students which enhances their learning motivation and effectiveness.
  • MULTIMODALITY
  • Interactive teaching strategies such as videos, games, quizzes, discussions, presentations, etc., are integrated into the content for a relaxing learning environment as well as children’s enthusiastic engagement during classes.
  • IMPLICIT  FEEDBACK
  • Interactions among students and instant corrections from teachers are important in building implicit feedback inside the brain which strengthens the understanding of the linguistic knowledge constantly.
  • OUR TEACHING MODE

"Three-fixed Principle"

Fixed class time, fixed teacher, and fixed classmates favor the establishment of coherent learning model, harmonious classroom order, and a stable English social environment. These conditions further elevate students’ learning efficiency.

FIXED CLASS TIME

A fixed schedule and frequency remain consistent throughout the learning process which is a critical factor for language acquisition.

FIXED TEACHER

Sufficient time and space are given to teachers to understand each student’s abilities and personality in order to tailor appropriate individual teaching strategies. It also reduces the impact of frequent replacement of teachers on children’s learning effectiveness.

FIXED CLASSMATES

The interactive learning among peers inspires the children’s interest in active participation in class activities and gradually develops their social skills in an English environment.

  • OUR LEARNING APPROACH

Customized English Learning Under EET Framework

Protostar Education’s exclusive consultant of research and teaching team, the doctorate in Education from the University of Nottingham, and the founder of Protostar jointly propose ‘EET’ (Effective Exposure Time) based on the continuous research on the youth and children’s English acquisition.

Under the framework of EET, our teachers develop a unique learning schedule for each student in accordance with their level. We aim to discover the critical factors of English language acquisition for each student through analyzing the length and the type of EET accumulated during students’ learning process. Thus, the constant adjustment on the proportion of formal instruction and informal instruction maintain their interest in learning English while improving their learning outcomes.

  • MOTHER'S WORD

I think that Protostar Education’s curriculum is very systematic. The class arrangement and linkage are so good that it connects with foreign teaching materials. Songs, animation and teacher’s feedback instantly correct their pronunciation so that they can speak English well.

Mrs. Chen,whose 6-year-old son will be attending international school.

I used to sign up for ‘one-to-one‘online courses for my son. He talked with his teacher pretty well during the lesson, but it was not the case at home. Since my daughter has learned English through Protostar, she takes every opportunity to answer the teacher’s question in English. She can now talk and even tell stories in English under instruction from the teacher!

Mrs. Qin,whose 7-year-old daughter will be attending Direct Subsidy School.

I had been worrying about whether she could understand what the teacher said until her class teacher told me that English proficiency is closely related to the Effective Exposure Time accumulated. My daughter remembers new words unconsciously when she is enjoying interactive games and animations during class as well as during gamified homework after class. She now even shares what she learns with other children!
