Opening the doors to the world

English has been described as “the language of opportunity”. It is the official language in 60 of the world’s 196 countries, and the commonly adopted second language in many more countries. It is the language of diplomacy and the official language of the European Union and the United Nations. It is the primary language on the Internet, in popular culture and science. Being able to speak English opens the doors to the world, allowing to communicate with people almost everywhere around the world, to travel, and to choose freely where to live and work.

Therefore, the emphasis of our English as a foreign language classes is on being able to communicate; both orally and in writing. The younger children are taught vocabulary and phrasing through songs, flashcards and games which make learning fun. The older children apply themselves to learning more written grammar with the idea that they will learn the concepts in an environment where they can feel safe to repeat exercises and ask questions.

A suitable level for each child

We aim to enable children to be at ease with English, and to be able to communicate at a level above the English taught in the local school. We take the time to deal with the more difficult elements of the English language, such as forming the interrogative and negative. Our classes are based on a level system with 14 different classes. We propose a level well suited to the child’s age as well as ability.

Making learning fun

The textbooks that we use in the classroom are supplemented with visual materials, songs, games and years of teaching experience from our staff.
