Myanmar Studies

Curriculum

Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 & 9)

In the Secondary School, Myanmar Studies is divided into three groups: Literate, Non-literate and International. Pupils study Myanmar literature, traditional cultures and customs of different tribes, and Myanmar Geography in Myanmar studies lessons.

In Myanmar language lessons, literate pupils read and write different articles in different formal and informal writing styles (such as persuasive writing in newsletters and advertising). They learn to communicate effectively with correct grammar and sentence structure. In speaking and listening, they expand their vocabulary. Their learning is based on Myanmar National Curriculum textbooks.

Non-literate but fluent pupils study the Myanmar alphabet, learning basic spelling skills and sentence structure. Short stories are used for both reading comprehension and writing.

International students learn to respond to short instructions and ask simple questions using the common vocabulary of food, directions, places, appearance, family and clothes. They also learn to speak, read and write using Myanmar numbers.

The long term plans set out the programmes of study for the whole academic year and enables parents to see the topics being studied term by term.
