Kids English Program

Learning is an ongoing, transformative process. At ELEC, kids, we provide a conducive learning environment, which aims to nurture children’s intellectual, physical, social emotional and creative development. We believe in promoting children’s curiosity, increasing their confidence in using English and brining out the best in them.

There are 6 levels of personal development for junior students ranging from the age of 5 till 10 years old. Each level focuses on developing the students’ communication skills and enhancing their ability to communicate clearly in English with the world around them. It takes about 8 weeks to finish each level.

The Kids English Program is designed to develop the learning of the English Language efficiently and effectively. It does this by using the proven communicative approach to language learning, making lessons lively and highly interactive with a wide range of activities that include class work, home work, role play, class simulation, experiments, numeracy exposure and daily evaluation. These activities are geared to challenge the ability of students while allowing them to have fun while improving their English.
