Attend our free demonstration lessons for playgroup on 22 November and Phonics on 27 December for new students aged 12–35 months and studying K1–P1 respectively.
- We will bring our English language teaching expertise to life for playgroup children through the much-loved characters from Learning Time with Timmy, and boost their confidence in communication to prepare them for entry into kindergarten.
- One of our most popular courses, our Phonics courses incorporate good practice from the ‘Letters and Sounds’ and ‘Jolly Phonics’ programmes to create a multi-sensory learning experience.
- Free demonstration lessons
Lessons are taught by experienced and professionally qualified teachers. Children will participate in classroom activities in an English-only environment. For playgroup, our teachers will demonstrate how the children can learn through play. For Phonics, the younger group will be doing letter sounds and blending and the older group will be doing tricky words and alternative spellings.
- Course consultations and special discounts on course registration*
Our teachers will be present to answer any questions you may have about our courses. Our professional English Services Consultants will present our English course details to you and help you select the most suitable course. You can also enjoy a special offer* on our courses on the day of the event.
