  Course Description:

Layer-27
 
 
 
 

Our Junior Exam Preparation courses are designed for children and young people who want to increase their opportunities in education by taking an internationally-recognised English exam.  Students can study in closed groups or in multinational classes, and courses are designed to meet the specific needs of each group.

The classes are designed to be fun, supportive and motivating, and will develop children’s language and communication skills while preparing them for the examination.

The lessons from 09:00 - 11:30 and 14:00 - 16:30 focus on all aspects of the language, including grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, speaking, listening, reading and writing.

The lessons from 11:45 - 12:30 and 13:00 - 13:45 build on the language from these classes, with a focus on examination skills.

We can prepare students for the following examinations:

The classes use a range of methodologies and activities to help students learn and use the language.  The classes use bespoke materials, and these are supplemented with authentic materials, video and interactive technology.

There are regular progress tests and tutorials, which helps the teachers identify students’ strengths and weakness, and allows the students to check their progress in English.
