Our aim is to provide your child with a positive and constructive first English learning experience, introduce them to learning English in a fun and involving manner, focus is on recognition before production and expose them to natural, communicative English through real communication.
When designing our programme we considered the developmental needs of this age group, second language acquisition theory and our experience to ensure the best possible outcomes for our students. The six key features of the programme (routine, natural communication, songs, TPR/ games, stories, craft) reflect key methodologies and approaches, and are aimed at making your child?s learning not only enjoyable but meaningful.
The programme is “Topic Based” as we feel this best reflect the way children naturally learn. The topics (see below) are chosen not only to consider the interests of this age group, but also for their usefulness in terms of “functional language” which the students can use to communicate on a basic level with the teacher.
