Pedagogical information

Number of students per class: 8 children

The role of the parents: Even though the children are starting to become reasonably independent at this age, it is still necessary for parents to check that they listen to the CD every day. It is also important to be aware that, on this course, the children receive worksheets for homework to be done over the weekend.

Class length: 60 minutes, twice a week.

Course objectives: Although the students have been picking up the basic grammatical structures for a number of years without being fully aware of it, in these two courses, we begin to look at grammar more explicitly, particularly in writing. We continue to develop literacy skills and aim for our students’ reading skills to match their listening comprehension.

Teachers: At Kids&Us, all of our teachers have been specially trained to teach according to our methodology. Apart from continuous training, we also regularly assess our teachers in order to guarantee the quality of our classes. In the case of teaching staff who are non-native English speakers, we require them to have an excellent level of English in order to provide good language role models for our students. Moreover, we place great importance on their affinity and flair for working with children as well as their linguistic abilities.

Our teachers on courses for Tweens are enthusiastic individuals who thrive on working with young people who have already been learning English for years. As well as having received training to run these courses in particular, they are well versed in the entire process of our methodology. We ensure that our teachers have a solid understanding of the linguistic foundation that our students have acquired so that they can optimise the students’ knowledge and abilities when moving forward.
