Infant courses

These are for students aged between five and six years old.

The courses are designed to keep the children interested and motivated through constant change of pace and activity, fun and games, and use of song and video. Children learn to read and use the alphabet and learn to speak as well.

Junior courses

These are for students aged between seven and ten years old. The courses are designed to take into account the  child's development and growing  awareness. Throughout each course the children undertake carefully graded tasks and activities, which cover all aspects of English and actively involve the children in each lesson.

Senior courses

These are for students aged between eleven and fifteen years old (separate boys and girls classes where possible).

These courses take students from beginner through to intermediate level. The lessons integrate grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation with the development of skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking. All these elements are carefully graded and developed throughout the courses and students are encouraged to relate the language to themselves, their families and friends.

Registration system for young learners

Please make an appointment for your child to be tested. You will be given an appointment card for each child to be tested and must bring the child to the test on the date and at the time shown on the appointment card. Parents are encouraged to come and make their appointments as early as possible because places are limited.
