Our ONE-TO-ONE ENGLISH FOR YOUNG LEARNERS IMMERSION COURSE is specially designed for the youngest category of learner aged from approximately 10 to 13 years who need very special care and attention. Teachers and families for these courses have particular expertise and qualifications for teaching at this level and caring for younger students. The course comprises 10 hours English lessons and 10 hours activities such as painting, drawing and arts and crafts agreed in advance. Where possible, we always try to place our young students with teachers who have children of similar ages to the student.
Parents can be assured that their children are in a safe and secure environment while improving their English. The teacher and family will converse in English at all times and the young student will not be exposed to their mother tongue as is the case with large groups. This, along with a uniquely delivered course focusing on individual needs, makes our courses different to others. In addition, our courses are presented to allow for the maximum enjoyment from the immersion experience. Parents can be assured that the young students will be monitored and visited by us during their course. Further, they can contact us at any time should they need to discuss any matter or have any issue that they need to discuss.
Lessons are presented and delivered in an appropriate and friendly manner with the best interests of the young student in mind. Our teachers understand the needs of this group very well and are quite aware of the most suitable teaching methods to bring out the best in every young student while making the whole experience an enjoyable one for all concerned.
With the knowledge that most of our students will be at primary school level, there will be a mix of skills and activities and, of course, every course will be different according to individual needs. Emphasis will be on a balance of activities to ensure that those areas of language that need improvement will receive attention. There will be speaking practice and listening activities, good use of grammar appropriate for this level, vocabulary development, pronunciation and some reading and writing practice. Advice in relation to study skills will also be offered. Constant feedback and mentoring will feature and the teacher will offer all the assistance and encouragement needed to allow for maximum progress
After lessons there will be an opportunity to engage in some activities such as visits of the local area, swimming, and other appropriate activities. Activities will be organised by the teacher on at least three days per week which will comprise activities such as swimming, cinema, walks, hikes, visits to interesting places etc. The exact activities will depend on suitable weather and of course taking into account the wishes of the student. Our objective for this course is to combine language with an immersion experience in an interesting and motivating way and provide a great experience for our very young students.
EXTRA ACTIVITIES: If requested, lessons and after-lesson activities can comprise three visits to places of interest such as interactive tours of famous buildings or other places of historic interest where students may speak and interact with actors, leisure sports such as crazy golf and city shopping tours etc. that have associated travel and entry fees. There is an additional charge of €125 per week for these activities.
We require that our very young students are collected on arrival at the airport and returned there and helped check in at an additional cost. This charge will not apply if students are accompanied from the airport to the teacher's home by an authorised adult and likewise for the return.
