For the third time we are holding an INTENSIVE summer course to help your children master a reading skill in English. Is it hard to learn reading in English? The answer is: “Definitely yes.” Try, for example, to read this simple eight-letter word, DAUGHTER. When it’s pronounced, we hear only four sounds. The logical question is, “Why should we write eight letters when we need only 4 of them? Comments are superfluous. That’s the reality of English reading.
But there is, of course, a way out. First of all, these are the rules of reading, and secondly, effective unique techniques that we use in the teaching and which provide excellent results from the very beginning.
So, this summer, we are announcing enrollment in two age groups: preschoolers who can’t read and elementary school children who would like to practice their reading skills.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
Children of 5-7 years old will:
✓ learn about letters and their sounds through Leap Frog and Super Simple Learning programs
✓ be able to read and write simple CVC words (words that consist of consonant-vowel-consonant sounds such as dog, bag, pig, fox).
✓ learn the songs in English
✓ learn many new words and simple phrases
✓ create their own book with all letters of the English alphabet
✓ enjoy interesting games and creative tasks
Children of 7-9 years old will:
✓ learn to fluently read and write simple CVC words (words that consist of consonant-vowel-consonant sounds such as cat, leg, cup)
✓ learn the basic rules of reading (open and closed syllables, consonant to consonant linking, etc.)
✓ get acquainted with the first level sight words (words that do not fit standard phonetic patterns), such as was, said, have, etc.
✓ read and create their own book in English
✓ pass a reading speed test at the beginning and the end of the course to see the progress they have
The time frame of the intensive course is from 05.07.2021 to 15.08.2021
We work in groups of 6-8 people
One lesson lasts 45 minutes (3 times a week) or 65 minutes (2 times a week)
The course for preschoolers costs 210 euros
The course for elementary school children costs 252 euros
English is one of the three main school subjects. Therefore, the earlier you make your child familiar with this language, the easier his or her school start will be.
