English in Pre-schools at Prague 10

Our aim is to provide your child with a positive and constructive first English learning experience and introduce them to learning English in a fun and involving manner. Our focus is on recognition before production and exposure to natural, communicative English through real interaction.

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 the 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.

Lesson plan

The programme is ‘Topic Based’ as we feel this best reflects the way children naturally learn. The topics (see below) are chosen not only to consideration os 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.
