The course will focus on both speaking and writing in academic English. The 5-week curriculum has been developed to support children who lack the confidence and who will start benefitting immediately in their day to day school life.

The home work load is around 2 hours per session. The maximum number of students is 10. After the first lesson, there is still the option to opt-out. So why not give it a try? Late enrolments are also accepted.
