We provide an extensive curriculum with accompanying course materials, graded reinforcement activities, visual and audio aids and creative materials made in London.

Our programme is suitable for all levels of English and children learning English as a second or alternative language. Courses can be organized in schools, as an after-school activity, in private venues, summer camps, for small bespoke private groups and one-on-one tuition, according to the needs of schools and parents.

Course Activities


Each term a new story, theme, set of language objectives, setting and list of characters are introduced through Active Storytelling followed by active participation. Children are encouraged to impersonate different characters using the drama scripts developed for each story and play-act together as a group.

Each story is accompanied by a range of theme-based games, action song, art/craft activities and project workbook, that reinforce confidence and fluency.
