This spring we will be holding a special English programme for elementary school children during the spring holiday. Using Core English, an English language programme specially developed by HarperCollins for the British Council, tailored to your child's age and level. Core English covers the four international standard English skills of reading, listening, writing and speaking (dialogue and presentation) in a well-balanced manner while improving basic English skills. The course also includes Arts & Crafts activity every day where students will receive language input and practice related to the topic and will have the chance to make a piece of artwork related to the topic. 

Build your child’s self confience 

Core English helps your child develop their communication skills through projects, learn new vocabulary and expressions, and improve overall English proficiency. Our highly qualified teachers will create a class environment where it is easy for each child to speak up and where each child can learn freely and enjoyably.
