English as a Second Language

Students in the primary school have two options to join our English classes:

Step 1 Preliminary English classes free of charge!

Step 2 classes are designed for children in the second grade of primary school.  In Step 1 and Step 2 classes, students will be introduced to the English Language in a way that will be both enjoyable and motivating. Well trained and experienced teachers will make good use of technology.  Learning is emphasised through games, songs, fairy tales and creative activities. They will speak, listen and recognise letters and words.

Our aim is to gently introduce the children to afternoon activities and prepare students for the English 1 (E1) level where they will continue a well-structured syllabus with equal emphasis on all four skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing.

The strong foundations laid at the elementary level will enable our pupils to take their first external Cambridge Young Learners Starters and Movers examinations. Preparing for and taking these external examinations will not only be challenging and motivating but also good preparation for taking the Cambridge KET, PET, FCE and IGCSE later on (see table below).

With us your children will be taught to communicate effectively in English, and obtain valid qualifications that are recognised by British and European Universities. FCE and IGCSE are also recognised in Cyprus (Civil Service, Banks, etc.) for employment purposes.
