Children’s English Classes

 

 

 

Weekday English Classes

 

Our native English speaking teachers are here for your every need. We guide students through a fun and educational English course that encourages them to build competence and confidence as learners. Our course includes an excellent variety of creative activities that encourage children to develop academic, personal, and social skills.

Whether your child needs support with school homework, exam preparation, or just need some extra one-on-one English attention, we are here for you.

We offer a comprehensive course for after school classes, which are inline with the internationally accredited Oxford curriculum. We also have more advanced and specialist courses available. Should you require them, please ask.

 

Get Set Go 1

Our level 1 classes are designed with a smooth, fun, and interactive introduction to English in mind. We begin by introducing key sections of the vocabulary, such as colours and ‘hellos & goodbyes’ to help improve students’ listening and speaking. We also provide an introduction to phonics, reading and writing.

Due to our long term experience running language classes for children, we know how hard it can be to have a child focus on a whiteboard or textbooks, so we design our classes with fun and interactivity in mind. We make each lesson as stimulating as possible and we even organise field trips just to keep things interesting for them.

The textbook we use is ‘Get Set Go’ volume 1,  published by Oxford University Press. The textbook creates a rounded syllabus specially designed for children.

 

Get Set Go 2

These classes are a slight step up from their younger counterpart. In this class we aim to once again widen the student’s vocabulary and to introduce more descriptive words so the child can speak about different subjects with a base level of understanding. We work heavily on phonics, aiming to help the child to pronounce possibly difficult sounds in a clearer way. The child’s writing will also be worked on to a higher degree, as we attempt to have the child writing short concrete pieces on their own.

Just like the other classes we still aim to make these classes as fun and stimulating for the child as possible. Trying to learn a new language can be a massive strain even for the most experienced adult, so as a child we know they can lose interest if the classes aren’t engaging enough. So, we do our best to make them interesting as well as educational for the student.

Oxford University Press published ‘Get Set Go’ volume 2 are used in the class, combining a firm mixture of reading, writing, listening, and speaking tasks.

Get Set Go 3

This is designed for children up to roughly 16 years old, depending on ability. In these classes we aim to teach the child short, spoken pieces describing hobbies, places, wishes, etc. Their reading and writing will match their speech and they’ll be able to understand simple texts as well as being able to write short descriptive and concrete pieces.

In these classes the children are often more mature then their younger counterparts, therefore we try to create an educational environment while still including the fun and interactivity of the younger ages. We feel learning to speak a language should be a group activity and so the students are encouraged to engage in group work, enabling them to use their English in a comfortable and safe setting.

‘Get Set Go’ volume 3, published by Oxford University Press are the official textbooks for this class, giving the children different tasks focusing on speaking an reading, presented in an enjoyable way.

Learning should be fun

 

 

Learning can and should be fun

This isn’t a statement said simply from a moral standing, but out of scientific research too.

When you learn something new, a chemical called dopamine shoot through your brain. It’s what makes us feel happy. Our body feels rewarded, which gives us motivation to repeat whatever caused it.

The reason for this electro-chemical connection between learning and reward is that our brains have obviously been designed to have fun through learning!

Even the most boring grammar point can be exciting. Today, we learnt about commas in our advanced class. Take a look at how much fun we had (and learn the rules about commas at the same time)!

School Running Club

,

Jog, run, or sprint your way to success!

 

Did you know that exercise improves memory and learning? Numerous studies show that a little daily exercise helps keep us alert and think more clearly. We are happy when you come to school and sit in our lovely air conditioned classrooms, but it’s important for us all to get moving and keep active too. What better way to do it than to join our school running club?

 

We may have just missed the Koh Samui Marathon, but there’s nothing stopping you from training for the next one. Or if the thought of running the length of Samui (twice!) gets you shaking in your trainers, jogging along the coast while you watch the sunset might be the thing for you.


 Whether you are a complete beginner, an occasional jogger, or a running superstar, we want you to join us!

 
Whatever your goal, this is a great opportunity for you to improve your fitness, socialize, and be part of a supportive network of like-minded people!
 
We can meet whenever and wherever you like (outside school hours, of course). 
 

On your marks, get set, GO!
