English for Kids
As a qualified teacher for “Teaching English to Young Learners”, I have extensive experience in the area of teaching English to children. When teaching children of pre-school and primary-school age, I use the Genki approach.
“The Genki approach to learning English works by engaging all of the learners’ senses and appealing to a wide range of learning styles. Children are engaged visually through the simple but striking graphics, aurally/orally through the simple chants and songs and limited amounts of graded vocabulary input and kinaesthetically through the actions and games. Because all of the learning tasks are organised as game-like activities, children are immediately motivated to take part.” – British Council Press Release
In my lessons, I use entertaining but at the same time very educational materials including songs, games, books, puzzles, CDs, interactive computer games etc. These appeal instantly and instinctively to young children.
It is a fact that children of pre-school and primary-school age learn effortlessly when things are presented to them in a playful way. In particular, pronunciation and syntax of simple sentences can be learnt easily using songs, rhymes and dynamic games.
I offer one-to-one lessons and lessons in small groups of up to six children. These classes accommodate children up to fourth grade and are bursting with fun, singing, games and movement. These classes are devised to introduce children to English in a playful and fun manner and to give children the confidence to give English a go. In a nutshell, big smiles all round…
