Courses for Juniors & Young Learners

United School has a variety of English courses for children from the age of 3 to 12 years old. With our Younger Learners the emphasis is on learning English through songs, stories, video, projects and crafts, carefully selected for each age group. The children are constantly exposed to natural language in the classroom and are given every encouragement to use the language they have acquired from very early on. There is a strong focus on oral fluency, pronunciation and listening skills.

Junior students will develop a sound base in English grammar and vocabulary while using a highly communicative approach to learning. Students are placed into groups depending on their age, level of English and previous language learning experience. We also hold a number of socio-cultural events for the children, including Halloween, Christmas parties and other activities related to Anglo Saxon cultures.

Students are in addition prepared for the Young Learners of English Cambridge Exams.

The progress of our older children and Junior students is monitored by Progress Tests at the end of each term. Reports are then sent out to parents. Parents are free to make an appointment to speak to the Director, Assistant Director of Studies or their child's teacher, at any time during the school year.

  • Young Learner and Junior classes are for an hour twice a week

Baby Talk

Studies have shown that it is never too early to start teaching children a foreign language. The earlier children start learning a second language, the better, even as early as 3 months. Many teachers and linguists recommend starting the language learning process as soon as possible, even before children become verbal in their first language. Even though children are not speaking at that point, they are actively absorbing and processing language. This is why United School has developed a course structured specifically for very young children "Baby Talk".

This program is especially designed to provide children with hands on contact with the language through music, movements, rhymes, stories and games. The classes are in small groups once a week for 45 minutes. The babies attend these classes with a parent, a family member or an adult they may have a close family relationship with.

The course "Baby Talk" has been divided into 3 groups:

Tinnie tots  3 to 10 months old 
Tiny tots  11 to 24 months old 
Junior tots  3 to 5 years
