Questions and answers
Will my lessons be at the same time as my child’s?
Yes, if you book the same number of hours, you will start and finish your classes at the same time each day. Most classes are between 9 am and 2:30 pm.
What happens during classes?
Junior classes focus on communication, especially speaking and listening. Children will learn new vocabulary, practise grammar and build their confidence to use the language in everyday life.
How big are the groups?
In summer the groups are on average 10 students, the maximum number is 15. During the year the groups are much smaller, classes are often in one-to-one format.
Can my child attend social activities after classes?
During summer you can leave your child with our teacher for the time of the activity and collect them afterwards.
Outside of summer children can attend activities suitable for under 18s with a parent or a guardian so you will need to accompany your child. Weekday activities are included in the course.
Can we attend full day excursions at weekends?
Children can attend weekend trips under the supervision of their guardians or parents. The trips are between £20 and £40.
Will I need to drop off my child before the class and and pick them up after the class?
Children between 7 and 13 years old need to arrive with their guardians who should take them to the classroom and wait until the class starts. After the class children will need to be collected on time. 14 and 15 year olds can travel by themselves if the parent signs a travel consent form.
