Advaith follows the LSRW approach :

We ensure that children’s LSRW-Listening, speaking, reading and Writing skills are enhanced through variety of activities and continuous assessment and evaluation. We make certain that the child’s effective communication, critical thinking, creativity is being enhanced during these activities and assessments. Computers are used to enrich the experience of learning languages that enhance their listening skills. Various competitions throughout the academic year are conducted such as Radio talk, debate, essay competitions, oratory competitions to enrich their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. We assure that children’s skills are developed and enhanced in dynamic ways.
