A General English course designed for the needs of junior students. This is a perfect course for young learners who are looking to improve their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. The total immersion environment means that junior students speak and listen to English all day, helping build your child’s confidence and increase their English ability.

On a home tuition course students learn English at the teacher’s home. The English immersion environment means your child becomes more confident in using English and develops their knowledge of English grammar and vocabulary in a natural context. When students learn English at the teacher’s house, not only do they benefit from a personalised course, but they also take part in cultural activities and family life.

Using the Homelingua Advanced Learning System we can deliver results and progress much faster than other study methods.
