English for Kids
Language Learning through Activities
The two-for-one approach
Motivation is a key to successful language learning. This is why we offer our students a wide variety of activities to choose from (dancing, acting, singing). Our classes are designed to suit different language levels ranging from total beginners to fluent speakers. Taught by experienced native English speaking instructors our classes instill enthusiasm and active participation and thus create a genuine, immediate motivation to use and learn English. Studies have confirmed that this two-for-one approach can be highly effective. Informal language learning through communicative and content-based instruction and activities also improves comprehension skills, vocabulary, and communication competence.
Our English Language Classes
Our intensive English language classes are structured and taught in small groups. We also have a program designed especially for children with a bilingual background. At The Center we help them improve their speaking skills and later their literacy skills or we prepare them for their language assessment test in the international school.

Speaking Skills / Test Preparation
Saturdays 10:00-11:00am · Studio 1
In this class we focus on improving your child's confidence in speaking English.
Your child will participate in age-appropriate preschool activities, storytelling and games while we practice sentence structures and advanced vocabulary. Children are encouraged to speak in full sentences.
Classes are structured and taught in a small group. They are suitable for children with a good level of English, e.g. children with a bilingual (German / English) background who are preparing for their English language assessment test in international schools.
As your child is practicing to be confident without you around we kindly ask you not to sit in class, but to drop your child off and come back right BEFORE the end of the class to pick him or her up. We are happy to give you feed back after class.
Please note, that as we are teaching in all rooms during this time parents can not stay at The Center during class time.
