About our courses
Our courses are divided into three groups. Talk to Beeno, Phonics for Kids, and Picture Dictionary for preschool students, Big English for kids aged 6-12, and New Opportunities for teenagers. For all levels and text books we provide systematic training, materials, and software for use in your classes. Every step of a young learner’s journey in our schools has been thoughtfully planned for and no matter what the age or level, both teachers and students will have an experience that matches their needs and expectations.
In “Talk to Beeno”, preschool students get exposure to real life situations that suit their age and abilities that help to learn to communicate naturally and read proficiently. In “Phonics for Kids” they are exposed to the English alphabet, learn the sounds of English, perfect their pronunciation, and take the first steps to becoming good at writing and reading. “Picture Dictionary” provides an extensive amount of vocabulary and sentence structures that prepare them for public school education. Our “Big English” program incorporates topics not traditionally covered in ESL classes, such as science, and math, provides knowledge of the world through teaching about different countries and cultures, and aims to instill the skills students will need to be successful in the 21st century. “New Opportunities” is an advanced level English course that has content from a variety of areas that will challenge older students in ways that will help them succeed as young adults in an English environment.
