- Lessons are engaging and designed especially for young learners. Teachers aim to satisfy any interest, with a focus on communication to boost students' confidence when using English in practical situations. Regular tests and conversation classes help to ensure that students improve their English as much as possible.
- Our dedicated and professional teaching staff provide feedback and support and help students build confidence to speak English.
- All lessons and activities work together.Each week covers a different theme and what's learnt in class is linked with activities outside of the classroom. That means learners get to use and practise their skills every single day!
