Our Junior General English courses are designed for children and young people who want to increase their opportunities in education by studying English. 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 and prepare them for the world of education, leisure and work.
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 communication and practical skills.
We can also offer classes in specific subjects taught in English using a Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) approach
Classes are divided by level of English and age group, and all staff at Burlington School have training in safeguarding of children, and our Welfare and Safeguarding policies are followed at all times.
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.
