From 9 months to 6 years old — Juniors
English for juniors

Bilingual programme: language and development classes for kids of age 2 to 6. To provide children with perception of foreign language as a native one, teach them how to think in that language and get rid of fear to learn something new

We invite kids aged 9 months to our bilingual programme Pre-junior Barnaby

Why and what for

It’s never too late to learn a foreign language. But exactly at age of 5 to 6 a person acquires unique skill of multilingualism — use of more than one language. Further learning of foreign languages gets much easier to person with that skill.

Why and what for

Methods

Interesting activities - in english

Through our programme children learn about a number of subjects, that help with intellectual, creative and social development. Besides, we are developing interest for knowledge and studying, we are forming an ability to think freely and creatively and we are encouraging freedom of self-expression

 

Step-by step learning

With juniors we follow a russian day with an english one, firstly getting to know subject in a native language. That format helps a child’s adaptation to study. When children acquire certain vocabulary for confident communication, native language-based lessons are gradually replaced with english-speaking lessons, so that by third year of education programme is purely english.

Small groups with two teachers

Groups of 4 to 8 students who study with a teacher and an assistant

Attention to adaptation and psycologhical comfort of a child

We are always open in our desire to meet parents’ requests to ease the way for a child to embrace new world and new people. We have school psychologists, that will help, if you are not sure in feasibility of some steps, if you don’t know what is best for your child

Groups and teachers

Kids in Junior courses are divided in three major groups by age and language knowledge: A, B and C. One teacher and one junior tutor work with each group, which allows us to give a lot of attention to every individual child.
