English is the backbone of all learning and the single most important set of skills that children will ever acquire. It provides them with a powerful means to communicate and express their ideas and thoughts to others, everyday, and across the world. English provides the means of achieving dreams and aspirations, to become whatever they want to be. Enjoyment, experiences and pleasure are gained through a growing understanding of English in all its forms. It has the power to excite the imagination and allows us to become lost in other worlds and times beyond our experience. A secure command of English opens doorways, new paths to learning, entertainment and life.
