To use the pre-school years for early learning of English as means of communication.
Starting to learn the language at an early age makes the future learning process much faster and smoother.
Lessons have social benefit for children who do not attend kindergarten. They learn to work in a group, get used to listening to instructions, and manage to focus for a longer time.
We also try to assign 2-3 teachers to each group. They sometimes teach the lessons together, sometimes do it separately. This encourages not to get too attached to a particular teacher or accent.
Parents should not start worrying if their child finds it difficult to integrate into the group, understand the teacher, or manage the tasks assigned to him or her. Usually, during the first lesson the child observes the environment, does not participate much, also may look distracted and confused. It is normal, because in English-speaking environment the only familiar thing is body language. Child’s behaviour changes in 3-4 lessons, when the lesson sequence is clear and teachers become familiar.
Regular attendance ensures strong basic vocabulary. Kids start to recognize common phrases, react and follow English instructions, and eventually create firm foundation for further language learning. The earlier they start, the better results can be achieved.
Significant progress can be noticed in 6-9 months of learning. Children stop being afraid of a foreign language, do not start panicking after hearing a new word, try to find a connection between it and the teacher’s facial expressions, enjoy watching videos in English, follow simple song lyrics. Also, they learn to tell their native and foreign languages apart easily, opting for the right one when prompted.
Learning a foreign language often significantly improves pronunciation and articulation of the native language, too.
The only language used during these lessons is ENGLISH and children usually get used to this after a few lessons. There is no homework for children of this age.
Sometimes parents who dedicate plenty of time to teach their children English language at home ask us in what way AKS lessons are different from what they do at home. These are the main differences:
The course price is 9 EUR for one lesson (90 EUR/10 lessons). There are no trial lessons for children.
Payments should be made for ten lessons in advance:
English language+Art in English+Music&Acting is an integrated and coherent course. You can attend all of it or just parts of it.
These three classes are given one after another on Saturdays and Sundays (11:00 English Language, 12:00 Art in English, 13:00 Music&Acting).
