Feature 3: English classes
Efforts are made by the teachers to improve their teaching abilities in order to let students learn English happily and effectively. No matter which types of classes you are in, students play the leading role in class. Their English abilities and skills will be improved through observing, reading, writing, debating, thinking critically and cooperation. They could carry their violins to their English classes for daily speech. They could sing and design their own learning plan. They also could make mini-books, and even take a creative video. In Maple Leaf, the comprehensive English ability will be the main evaluation of the students’ English instead of the students’ test score.

A great number of English classes plays an important role for students to learn English while various of English clubs and activities are the supporting teaching resources for them, in which students not only learn English but also put English into practice, enhancing their confidence, for instance, English game clubs, English drama clubs, those clubs provide children with opportunities to not only learn English but also improve their acting skills. English Arts Festival, English Speech Contest, English Word Spelling Contest, and English Reading Competition have enabled students to show what they have learned in school. Students can experience the Western culture from Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and other Western festivals.
Feature 5: Evaluation System
Another feature of English teaching is the revolution of evaluation system, different from traditional summative evaluation, the new evaluation system is more scientific and practical. Here are the following details:
A. We changed from test result orientated system to a all-round evaluation system, both students’ behavior and test results will be taken into consideration.
B. Comprehensive evaluation on students’ attitude, habits and grades rather than single results of grades.
C. Test on listening, speaking, reading and writing, rather than written test.
D. Evaluated by both international teachers and bilingual teachers
For example: Student’s report card
Not only the score of the test, but also the comments. Thus, students and parents will know what the problem is and work on it. Formative evaluation stimulates students to focus on the accumulation of learning, which is more comprehensive and scientific. Meanwhile, to get the students ready for the evaluation system in Senior High school of Maple Leaf.
Here, students could learn plentiful English curriculums; Here, students could participate pluralistic English activities; Here, students could have more opportunities to experience international culture and cultivate English way of thinking. Here, students could see English everywhere, listen to English everywhere, and adapt themselves in the English environment.
