Course Summary:

This course is for children who understand simple conversation and can speak in short sentences.

In this course, all the grammar and vocabulary your child has accumulated will come together as they put their English skills to use. They’ll have conversations with their teacher using the words they’ve learned and start to read short stories and answer questions about them. This class will also teach your child to read words with more advanced letter combinations.
By the end of this course, your child will feel confident to hold open conversations in English, read short stories and answer questions that express their understanding of the context and message.

Curriculum:

Children love stories. A good story engages children’s imagination, helping them learn new vocabulary and understand the language constructs in a natural, fun way. That’s why each of our courses is built around a series of eight stories - four classes to a story.

The A Team
