Cool Kids Course (6-10 years)


About this course

Our youngest students learn English through a variety of child-centred, fun- filled activities under the expert supervision of fully qualified teachers. Activities include songs, roleplays, board games, arts, and drama.

Courses are designed to keep your children interested and focused while having fun at the same time. They learn English together with other young students from different parts of the world. The focus of the Cool Kids Course is on conversation practice. It is important to us that our young learners gain confidence in understanding and using the English language and that they enjoy it.

The schedule of the courses for all family members are coordinated so that you are all in class at the same time and may meet up at break times.

Is this the right course for my child?

The Cool Kids Course has been designed for 6 to 10-year-old children.
The main learning outcome is for the children to start communicating in English and having a great time doing so. This is a mixed-level class of 8 to 15 children. We accept language beginners (A0), elementary (A1), and pre-intermediate (A2) learners. This course is activity-based and includes board games, arts and crafts, songs, roleplays etc.
If your child enjoys playing and making new friends, he/she will pick up lots of English words and phrases in a relaxed atmosphere.

Can I have some information on the Academic Programme?

Our Cool Kids Course is a mixed-level group for our youngest learners aged 6 to 10. Particular emphasis will be placed on oral communication and the ability to understand and express oneself through simple, basic English. Some learners may not know how to read and write yet. Vocabulary-building and the introduction of functional language will play a large part in this programme to broaden learners’ lexical knowledge and in turn, promote confidence using the English language. Emphasis will also be placed from the very beginning on pronunciation skills, vital in language learning.

The teaching of vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation will be done mainly through listening and speaking activities, such as simple conversations, word repetition, rhymes, songs, audiovisual, storytelling, memory games, word and image matching games, board games, charades, and mining, dressing up and drama, roleplay, arts and crafts, cooking/baking, outdoor games, etc.
