Student support & welfare


Young Learners are grouped according to age and follow a dynamic and activity-based English learning programme.  Naturally curious, children love exploring, playing games and trying out anything new.  For this reason, our Young Learners classes are designed to combine learning with activity and play, giving as many opportunities for indirect learning as possible.  Small group and pair work activities help to build your child’s confidence as s/he interacts in English with multinational friends. Our qualified teachers use many innovative stimulating techniques to keep your child motivated and excited about learning the English language.


Typical classroom activities include learning English through songs, music, films, creating and describing art and craft activities. Culture also plays a part in the classroom with multicultural interests such as national hobbies, traditional dishes and favourite sports being a popular topic discussed during the lessons.
