Course description

Our tailor-made English for Teenagers course appeals to learners by the breadth of material covered and our dynamic interactive approach. Students can have conversational lessons based on the topics related to their hobbies and interests, Book Club lessons based on Sherlock Holmes’ stories, or TedTalks discussion lessons. New vocabulary is introduced in each class, and grammar carefully explained. Learners are encouraged to speak as much as possible during the lesson, while on-the-spot corrections ensure their steady progress.
Parents will always be updated on the progress their child is making with regular Progress Reports written by the child’s English teacher.
