New Playtime Program for Ages 3+

Introducing a brand new Playtime Program for Ages 3+ from Oxford University Press.


Playtime supports an all-round education for very young learners.

All-round fun…….
Playtime lets children have fun with English from the start! It helps children enjoy learning words, basic expressions, songs and chants with Monkey – a cuddly puppet who introduces all the stories and helps the teacher with flash cards! He only speaks English and really motivates the children to speak English.

All-round friends……..
Their friends in the stories are the child characters – Rocket, Star, Twig and Melody. Each of these characters represents a different learning style and each style is explored in Playtime.
Rocket – learns by doing, Melody learns by being creative, Twig learns by feeling and exploring and Star learns by listening and watching.

Playtime even has it’s own website with lots of fun downloadable content – including songs, games and activity sheets!
Contact us today for more information on this exciting new program and to organise a free trial lesson for you and your child.

Oxford Young Learners Placement Test

Ace and ChirpMeet Ace and Chirp!
They will be joining our team from September and taking our new students through a fun and reliable Online Placement Test provided by our good friends at Oxford University Press.

The test is designed for young learners aged 7-12 years and upon completion is able to accurately place new students into classes at the right level.

Every question is bright and colourful. There are characters and friendly illustrations too so students enjoy the test, staying focussed and confident throughout.
As students go through the test, the level of the questions adapts to their answers. This means each student is tested at the right level of challenge. And since students aren’t told if they’ve got a question wrong they finish the test feeling positive.

Further information on the Oxford Young Learners Placement Test can be found here.
