Why learn English?
The English language is the top language among the national languages in the sectors of communications, science, business, politics and diplomacy. It is also the language of entertainment, aeronautics, radio communications, computers and the Internet. It is one of the six official languages of the United Nations and one of the 23 official languages of the EU, where it ranks second as a native language and first as a foreign language, with 51%. Moreover, it is the only official language of the Commonwealth of Nations and it is used in many more international organizations.
Pre-Junior (for 6-7 year-old children)
We combine children’s daycare with creative activities and English language learning.
Our little friends learn their first English words and at the same time they enjoy: reading children’s literature, arts and crafts, songs, theatrical play, puppet shows, cooking and games on the interactive board. After completing this programme the children are ready to transition to the next class, having acquired some basic knowledge!
Α junior – Happy Mickies ( for 6-7 year-old children)
The main features of our educational system are the consistency and homogeneity of the classes. For this reason, we created this programme for children who are interested in attending the A junior class from a young age, having some special verbal skills and knowledge. After completing this class they will have assimilated simple and basic language structures. They begin to form whole sentences, to read simple texts grasping the main idea and they can describe simple everyday routines and activities. This class doesn’t lead to a certificate.
A junior (for 7-8 year-old children)
This level is exactly the same as the A junior Happy Mickies class, the only difference being the book materials. After completing this class, they will have also assimilated simple and basic language structures. They begin to form whole sentences, to read simple texts grasping the main idea and they can describe simple everyday routines and activities. This class doesn’t lead to a certificate.
Β junior (for 8-9 year-old children)
This class is the second of the Junior series classes, which prepares the students for the next Senior levels. The children can now describe everyday habits, talk about their lives and their interests, they can write short texts on specific topics and they can participate in simple discussions. Furthermore, this class leads to the Starters (YLE) exam of the University of Cambridge, which is optional.
A & B junior One Year (for 9-10 year-old children)
This is the intensive Junior level class which completes the A & B Junior levels in one academic year, which lasts longer. Furthermore, this class leads to the Starters (YLE) exam of the University of Cambridge, which is optional. After completing this class, the language skills of the students are the same as those of the Junior B students.
Α senior – Movers ( for 9, 10 & 11 year-old children)
In this level, the students have the opportunity to enhance their grammar and vocabulary skills, while at the same time they will begin to write longer paragraphs. Moreover, their oral expression will include more complex structures, allowing them to communicate more directly and analytically. At the end of the academic year, they can optionally take the exam for the Movers certificate of the University of Cambridge.
Β senior –Flyers ( for 10-12 year-old children)
In the second of the senior classes, the children learn to communicate in different situations, in different ways, recognizing, forming and using more complex language structures. The right strategy and technique in the written language production is absolutely necessary, as the students start to acquire more complex concepts of the grammatical phenomena. The acquired knowledge of this level can only be certified with the Flyers certificate of the University of Cambridge.
C senior –Key Experts (for 11-12 year-old children)
This is a particularly demanding level, which allows children to communicate in English, to engage in discussions with comfort, to recognize and use the aspects of English pronunciation and intonation in the right way, to comprehend complex grammar rules and to produce different types of written texts, following the best strategies and methodologies. This class leads to the KET certificate of the University of Cambridge, while at the same time, the children prepare for the B2 (Lower Cambridge & Michigan) exams.
After completing the Cs level and following firm classification criteria, some students can attend the B2 level course, with the right preparation.
