• English speaking: Shishya students converse only in English, whether it is with teachers or peers.
  • Phonics based learning: A phonic based approach is used from play group to 3rd Class which enables beginner readers to decode words by sounding them out and blending the sound-spelling patterns. Children learn proper pronunciation from an early age.
