It’s 2022 and whether we like it or not, South African youth love being online and active on social media. Many are almost addicted to Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, WhatsApp and Snapchat.
With Term 2 commencing in just a few days, we feel it’s a good time to start thinking about study skills as exams are just around the corner... The term “study skills” is a broad one, one in which parents and kids alike often find hard to tackle.
Welcome back to Term 2, team ESCA! We hope that you have taken the time to relax and recharge over the holidays. The start of a new term is a good time to reflect on Term 1, the things you aced and the things that need work.
Over the years, the methodology of teaching has progressed to a point where education is no longer about simply imparting academic knowledge to students, but also about encompassing larger aspects of life by including the holistic development of each individual.
Each student journey is dependent on a number of factors: genetics, their parents’ means and interest in their schooling, their school of choice, external factors (which can be within the family, local, national or even global, as we learnt in 2020).
At ESCA, we aim to empower students with linguistic flexibility through our comprehensive second-language programmes which include the option of taking Afrikaans, French or IsiZulu as a second language.
