This online course is designed to help kids develop the language skills and life skills they need as they go on to become global citizens of the future. In addition to improving their English, the course will also expand their teamwork, cultural understanding, internationalism, social confidence and leadership skills using a range of proven techniques. Above all, students are encouraged to unlock their potential and aim high in the future.
Class sizes are small, with a maximum of 8 children and, as a result, students receive plenty of individual attention from their teacher. Lessons are snappy, smart, active, fun and therefore keep kids engaged for short bursts of language learning each weekday. In addition, they are a great way to socialise and make new friends from around the world!
How do online lessons work?
Classes are accessed using Zoom. All students will need is a computer with a camera, somewhere quiet to watch and that’s it!
