I Can Read – English Classes in Singapore

I Can Read, educational centre for kids’ English classes in Singapore, has a total of 20 locations available island-wide, including one within Novena United Square (101 Thomson Road).

Established as a result of years of research between 1995-2000 by Antony Earnshaw and Annabel Seargeant, the centres offer English literacy courses for students aged 2.5 to 12 years old.

The company’s system, incorporating the reading programme, is structured, cumulative and hierarchical, and is the first system in the world to direct students how to link clusters of letters to single sounds in a unique manner.

In a 3-step progress, the reading programme enables the student to see how letters combine to create invariant sounds, empowering the student to take control of his or her own reading progress, making learning fun and easy for children and adults alike.

There are three educational programmes to choose from: I Can Read Discover, I Can Read, as well as I Can Read Plus.

Of these, I Can Read Discover focuses on younger children who are just starting out on their learning journeys. Generally this is a one hour per week course (though children can attend more often if the parents wish), aimed at children from the age of 2.5 years, designed to guide the youngest students towards early acquisition of English literacy.

The I Can Read course, meanwhile, aims to have students reading in just 6 months. The course follows the company’s core system, teaching and reinforcing one new sound each week. The students are taught to identify sounds via the use of a series of proprietary diacritical marks or clues.

Finally, I Can Read Plus focuses on the key English skills students need to achieve in Primary School, building on from the excellent reading platform students have gained, to target all literacy areas. Students develop understanding and confidence, in a fun interactive class setting.
