ENGLISH FOR CHILDREN

FROM 4 TO 10 YEARS OLD

Way before we study a language we learn to speak it.

Children are exposed to their mother tongue in a natural way, even before they start speaking themselves. This early exposure to language allows them to start their own oral production at a certain age. Following the principles of infant development psychology, Acorn Quality Language Learning offers the appropriate environment to expose children to English from day one, not only in the classroom, but also by communicating with their peers and with the school staff.

 

Most of life’s learning takes place during childhood through play. That’s why at Acorn Quality Language Learning, we believe that the best learning method is the one that adapts to the characteristics of each child and his/her way of relating to his/her environment. Therefore, we create play activities, role play,  cooking or handcraft workshops,  during which children acquire the language by using it, while at the same time they develop their ability for  empathy, sharing, solidarity and learning through their peers, working as a team.

 

As adults, we are the point of reference for our children; therefore the collaboration of the parents in the learning process is vital as it positively reinforces their achievements and encourages them when they fail. At Acorn we invite you to take part in this adventure and we open our doors so you can see how the children learn and encourage them at home to use what they have learnt. Our proximity to France makes it really easy to find an opportunity to practise what they have learnt, with a short excursion to French lands, watching films or cartoons in English together or listening to music.

Share with them some carefree time of fun in English!!

Our Summer Camp Project is specifically designed so that boys and girls keep improving their level, in a natural and progressive way through a programme that combines two hours of lessons every day with a whole series of play-based activities. These activities allow them to practice the structures and concepts they have acquired during the lessons while they also promote values such as camaraderie, team work, solidarity and respect for diversity.

The course is directed and coordinated by a team of Young dynamic native teachers with experience in teaching English to children and youngsters. They will present all theoretical content according to our communicative method and will also be in charge of the associated activities.
