Sophie, being of Sikh-German heritage, decided to pursue German as her Mother tongue language in school. After obtaining approval to take the language as a private student, she joined Agape School of Education (ASE), an MOE-certified language centre.
Despite having some basic knowledge of the language, ASE was invaluable in building her linguistic foundation. Her teachers, together with the structured environment and careful nurturing, made her learning process smooth and enjoyable. Be it a group class or a private, individual class, ASE ensures its students leave with a firm grasp of the language.
At every level of learning, periodic internal tests and year-end examinations were conducted to monitor Sophie’s progress. Her class attendance and results were made known to MOE regularly, emphasising the seriousness of ASE as a language school.
Sophie’s confidence and enthusiasm grew with each year, and she advanced significantly with the unwavering support of her teachers and other staff at ASE. After 6 years of German classes at ASE, Sophie’s parents decided to enrol her to take the German international accreditation examination, administered by the Goethe-Institut Singapore at the A2 level. Sophie received an excellent grade of 72/80 and the highest grade of “Sehr Gut/Very Good” for the A2 certification.
Thanks to the guidance by ASE and the ASE syllabus, which follows the MOE guidelines, Sophie was also able to easily integrate into classes at the MOE Language centre, where she now continues her German language education. Despite being in Secondary 2, Sophie recently competed in a German reading competition against students three years her senior and won!
ASE is strongly recommended for students and adults who want to learn a new language, build a strong foundation and nurture self-confidence. Teachers will go the extra mile, be it to adjust lesson schedules to accommodate the students’ busy schedules or to update lesson plans as per the students’ interests. The school and its staff uphold excellence and professionalism in all areas of learning, ensuring learners that they are in good hands.
