Toddler Early English courses teach English to young children, aged 3 and 4, taught by a native English speaker with experience in early learning. This unique method builds on children's natural ability to absorb spoken language, through singing and playing, repetitive hearing and positive reinforcement. Classes offer a fun-filled environment where children can pick up English with the same ease as they learn their mother tongue.
Our little ones absolutely enjoy their lesson and are given a unique opportunity to learn in a natural, stress-free environment.
This course emphasizes on speaking and listening, as students are now able to carry out basic dialogues and their vocabulary allows them to practise pronunciation and repeat and recognize sounds in English the same way they do in their mother tongue. Students practise through rhymes and songs and they even do a little bit of cooking or carry out simple experiments. By the end of the year our kindergarteners feel confident and they have developed a genuine love for English which is essentially what we are aiming for.
These courses are designed to introduce students to the English alphabet and writing. Students have their books and their ebooks and they are introduced to the amazing world of storytelling. We, among others, teach Jolly Phonics, which children love, and we carry on teaching through interactive games and activities, and arts and crafts.
This is the time when we start teaching Grammar and Writing but we also continue to place great importance on enriching vocabulary and encouraging students to speak in English during their classes. Students are confident speakers of English by the end of year 4 and they can produce both written and spoken language without struggling or hesitating. Students learn through project work and autonomous studying alongside guidance from their teachers.

After Year 1 (Junior A) students have the option of taking a Cambridge exam every year.
Cambridge English: Young Learners is a series of fun, motivating English language tests, aimed at children in primary and lower-secondary education. There are three activity-based tests – Starters, Movers and Flyers. This gives students a clear path to improve in English.
Students are now ready to move on to learning idioms and phrasal verbs and really study the language in depth. At Limassol School of English we do care a lot about Writing and this is the time for our students to master these skills and techniques. It is also extremely important for us that our students develop critical thinking and that is why we often have debates that sharpen their critical thinking skills. Our students can think about important issues, they can present them and they can engage in conversations about these issues. They also have the Writing skills to present these key issues in a way that is relevant and appropriate for their age.
A Cambridge English: Key (KET) qualification is proof of your ability to use English to communicate in simple situations. The exam tests all four English language skills – reading, writing, listening and speaking.
A Cambridge English: Preliminary (PET) qualification shows that you have mastered the basics of English and now have practical language skills for everyday use.
This is what we have been preparing our students for; two years of intensive study where students can apply what they had been learning and succeed in their most important exams. Our students are now able to tackle demanding exams and get the grades they deserve in order to excel at university or meet future jobs language requirements.
Students are given ample practice for their exams and they learn to cope with stress and time pressures. Our students are taught the right techniques from an early age and are trained to approach various tasks and topics with an open mind and critical thought. Students sit various mock exams in order for us to ensure that they are familiar with the tasks and time limits. Students always attend extra lessons and are provided with feedback about their work throughout the year.
Students who wish to continue studying are given the option to sit the Cambridge First Certificate Exam and then move on to do their IELTS if they are interested in pursuing Academic study in the UK.
