Introduction

The Curriculum Development Center's ("the Center") curriculum for English for Grade IX - Grade X is designed to:

1. Develop an understanding of and competence in spoken English
2. Communicate fluently and accurately with other English speakers
3. Develop competence in understanding a variety of reading texts
4. Gain the skills necessary to write appropriate and effective English
5. Develop an ability to use simple reference materials
6. Read, appreciate and enjoy literary texts
7. Develop an awareness of contemporary social values and norms relevant to Nepal. 

The Center produced a Teacher's Guide - Grade IX to explain its objective in detail.  The lengthy document is specific in prescribing the structure, and mode of instruction.  It is a road-map for teachers, and, from our review, an effective reference for parents of Grade IX students.  The Teacher's Manual can be downloaded in pdf format from the link given below.

The web is particularly rich in learning resources for primary school children.  Our selection of relevant resources is offered within the Learning Resource and Reference Resource sections in this page.  

Our selections are only points of departure for students seeking to learn and for parents and teachers seeking to help educate your Grade IX charges.  You will, undoubtedly, find better sources, references, videos on your own.  Share those resources with the myLLPS community at large in the subject-specific group pages below.  Alternatively, make your own page, and be a star teacher, parent, supporter of the Grade IX student community.
