We do things differently at English for Fun, and our Teens and Tweens program is no exception. We put a huge focus on the practical application of the language, and avoid grammar and passive learning. We’ve been doing this long enough to know that the best way for children to learn English in an extracurricular setting is in a fun environment that doesn’t feel like the elementary school at which they were just sitting at a desk all day prior to joining us.
Some primary characteristics of the program include:
- Active project-based learning
- Skill development
- Lots of fun!
- Interest-based activities
- This program promotes self-esteem and confidence
- Quite simply – we achieve English-langauge fluency
We add new options for our Enrichment Program students every single year offering a fresh options to keep our kids as engaged as possible.
This year the Tweens English Enrichment Program is based on project development throughout each trimester, incorporating journalism, cinematography, human rights education, and entrepreneurship, and much more. This helps to build skills for their future even beyond the obvious language learning that inevitably occurs, and every trimester the Tweens create exciting publications, documentaries, and product designs – and even at times work on raising money for causes that they believe in while learning about the plight of those who are less fortunate. Many of our students have even designed initiatives themselves from start to finish. We couldn’t possibly be more proud of their efforts.
Our aim every year is to give Teens and Tweens a unique opportunity to use English in a variety of exciting and challenging situations that will engage them and make them realize their full potential resulting from the superior English level that we help them to develop.
Our students are superstars!
