English for children

Did you know research has shown that children who start learning a second language before the age of ten are more likely to reach native proficiency? With our courses for young learners from ages 6-12, we encourage students to learn and engage with the language in a fun way in order to achieve this objective and set them up for a brighter future.

We use the Cambridge curriculum: Pre-A1 Starters, A1 Movers and A2 Flyers. Students are able to take the Cambridge test after 6 or 12 months of study (depending on their level) and receive a globally accepted certificate from Cambridge English – a department of the renowned Cambridge University. 

These courses are not only for test preparation. In fact, test preparation is a small part of the courses and the main aim is to teach children English through a variety of fun stories, videos, songs and role plays, so they become more confident in using the language in everyday situations.
