WHO IS IN THE GROUP?

6-7 year olds, who haven’t started learning English yet or have minimal knowledge.

COURSE OBJECTIVE 

To introduce children with English letters, sounds, basic writing and grammar rules, and also form basis of active vocabulary.

Children are encouraged to express themselves in English while addressing their teacher in English too. At first kids’ skills are usually very scarce and they find it difficult to form sentences, but it does not take long for them to get used to most common phrases and English language environment.

COURSE BENEFIT

Starting to learn the language at an early age makes the future learning process much faster and smoother.

Lessons have social benefit for pre-school children, since 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.

EXCEPTIONAL COURSE 

The only language used during these lessons is English and children usually get used to this after attending five lessons.

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:

  • Plan. 6-7 y.o. group lessons are taught by following a strict syllabus. Every lesson is dedicated to a single letter of alphabet, while the subsequent Art in English and Music&Acting lessons continue to master the usage of that letter. Lesson activities are divided into at least six stages to keep children’s attention.
  • Professional teachers. Every AKS specialist working with children has received a necessary Teacher Training (kids), has enough experience in this area working both in Lithuania and abroad, knows how to manage a group, appropriately react to children’s emotions, and maintain their attention. You will always receive advice on additional learning from our teachers.
  • Variety. Although at AKS we are proud of our teaching material variety, we also believe that less is more. We try to use less video materials so that children could pay more attention to their teacher and peers instead of getting glued to the screen. We encourage children to discover new things by themselves: to touch, to change, and to ask. We use drawing as and additional means of memory improvement. Children remember information much better if they put the things they have learnt on paper (for example, if we are learning about human body parts, it is much easier for them to learn when they are written on a colourful human painting. Later paintings also serve as a very valuable demonstrational material for revision. We would like to stress this, because some parents see painting as a waste of time).
  • Socialization. Group lessons are completely different from individual ones. In group lessons children learn consistency, order, and concentration, while also trying to help slower learners not to fall behind. They learn social skills, such as the right way to interrupt others, listen carefully and manage to hear important information, and also how to ask the right questions.
  • Respectful attitude towards teacher. Participating in lessons given by a teacher who is a completely new acquaintance to children and not a family member helps them to find a different self-image (not everything is allowed) and environment (there are things I do not understand). Throughout time, as relationship with teachers and peers is becomes closer, children relax, but previously introduced discipline remains and the learning process is more beneficial than learning at home.

COURSE RESULT

Children who attend lessons consistently begin to understand long sentences and express themselves in short ones in approximately 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 teacher’s facial expressions, enjoy learning new words and using them with the ones they already know. They feel much safer and more assured of themselves when they start learning English in a public school, and seldom have concentration problems.

Learning a foreign language often significantly improves pronunciation and articulation of the native language too.

COURSE ALTERNATIVE

If none of the scheduled times suit you, please contact us to discuss other options. We always have some people waiting to start a new group at a different time from the one in the schedule and maybe you could start learning together instantly. There is also an opportunity to study individually.

COURSE PRICE

The course price is 9 EUR for one lesson (90 EUR/10 lessons). There are no trial lessons for children.

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).

We remind you that the number of participants in the group is limited, therefore you can lose your spot if you do not book the course in advance.
