English Explorers

Our general English course provides fun and engaging lessons that not only progress your child’s English skills but also inspire them to be lifelong learners of the language.

Our English Explorers course is designed to be interactive and give students the everyday language skills they need to make new friends from the UK and around the world. By focusing on improving your child’s vocabulary, grammar, reading, writing and speaking through project work and games, our primary aim is to provide your child with every opportunity to use their English in fun real-world situations.

Everything we do on our English Explorers course at Twyford is to help our young learners to truly love and feel proud of their progress in English. Everything we achieve begins with the nurturing, supportive and enthusiastic presence of our compassionate staff who are dedicated to providing your children with an amazing learning experience that will live with them for years to come.

Why Choose

Our Communicative Method

All of our teachers follow a communicative method to teaching English. This means that all activities, no matter if they are focused on grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing or speaking, involve the students communicating with each other in English at all appropriate times. By adopting this method students:

  • Boost their confidence in speaking
  • Enhance their ability in listening to English for longer periods.
  • Improve their ability to use new vocabulary.
  • Through fun activities and positive reinforcement, our students feel inspired to keep using the language.

Our teachers use a variety of modern teaching approaches to make sure students have the right balance of individual work, pair work and group work, in order to maximise their learning experience and build their confidence when communicating in English.

What you’ll learn

All of our classes are taught using a communicative method which places speaking and communicating as the number one goal. A huge benefit of this is that our young learners:

  • Develop key skills, including communication, collaboration and teamwork skills.
