After School EFL Support - ‘Specials’ Programmes
Ages 3 to 5 years (Butterfly Specials)
Ages 4 to 5.5 years (Bugs Specials)
We offer a special full afternoon of EFL based study and fun, for children who cannot attend our regular international school.
Names & Age Groups
These programmes run on Wednesdays and are called:
- Butterfly Specials, ages 3 to 4 years
- Big Bug Specials, ages 4 to 5 years
- Super Bugs Specials, ages 5 to 6* years
Note - children who are actually 6 years old when joining may be asked to join our Elementary Class
These classes have been running successfully for many years.
Originally designed for our international school alums, the programme was a way for children to return to us so that we can help them maintain/improve their English and continue to experience an international school environment. It has developed into an excellent ESL option in the afternoon that covers a lot of information.
Who can attend?
We invite all students ages 3 to 10 years old whose families have a serious interest in ESL/EFL studies for their children. It is particularly beneficial for children who are returnees, have some knowledge of English, or have English language support at home.
If your child is a complete English language beginner this programme may be too challenging but we can design a programme for them – please talk to us!
Numbers are limited in each age group and the programme is not generally advertised.
This course is like a mini-kindergarten day and includes:
