Learn to Read and Write
| Learn to Read and Learn to Write are a package of two books specially designed to help children aged 4 and above to learn such basics as the letters of the English alphabet, numbers, shapes and colours.
Learn to Read provides the basic and essential elements of the learning of the alphabet. The children learn to recognise and pronounce the 26 letters. They also learn to associate the letters with objects and animals which are common to them in their environment so that the meanings of the words can be easily understood. The use of attractive stickers stimulates the children's interest to learn. What's more, they learn to pronounce the words properly in the process. Equally important, number recognition to ten is taught as a key to their early maths. Colours and shapes are introduced to them as the recognisable characteristics to observe and categorise what they see.
Learn To Write provides one set of tracing worksheets for practice on mastering the necessary strokes required for formal handwriting and one set of worksheets for practice in printing the uper case and lower case versions of each letter. These worksheets are instrumental in developing and reinforcing the children's fine motor skills.
| The English Comprehension series aims to help pupils familiarise themselves with the different types of passages and the different questioning techniques used. Pupils also get acquainted with the latest examination format, ensuring that they are equipped with critical skills to answer comprehension questions confidently.

| The Master Editing series is published on the understanding that the tips and the exercises in the eight graded workbooks will help students learn the editing skill of identifying and correcting errors, which is an important part of the learning of a language, especially the writing process. Each workbook is divided into four parts that provide practice on reviewing the four elements of good writing: grammar, spelling, punctuation and sentence order. These elements are the backbone of a language that a learner or a user must understand in order to write effectively and accurately. Writing effectively means the ability to express clearly what one thinks, feels or wants. Writing accurately means the absence of errors that will hinder understanding of meaning.
Each workbook features:
Part A- Editing Grammar (Practice on parts of speech)
Part B- Editing Spelling (Practice on accurate spelling)
Part C- Editing Punctuation (Practice on basic punctuation)
Part D- Editing Sentence Order (Practice on sentence and sequencing)
