are playful and fun-
Our functional English clubs are for children ages 4-9 years old. Clubs meet once a week. All children are welcome no matter their knowledge of the English language. The means of early language teaching methods used are learning activities e.g. games, music, rhymes, listening to stories, reading, writing, group work and crafts. The Language Clubhouse learning materials are used in the club and a new topic is covered each month. Children are encouraged to communicate as much as possible in English with the students and club leader. We keep our club groups small and cozy 6-10 kids per group.
a learning community-
The children in the clubs get familiar with the other club members and the club leader and gain new relationships and friendships in a safe environment. Our aim is to create positive images of different languages and cultures and to introduce this through learning the English language. Our clubs emphasize on enriching togetherness and increasing linguistic and cultural understanding, while supporting multilingualism and growing appreciation of different languages . We strive to create a positive group spirit and the atmosphere is a warm and inviting one for all. We also do close cooperation with the children’s families and invite the families to visit and participate in the club regularly when it is suitable for them.
club lesson structure-
- Welcome and greetings
- Movement game
- Introduce vocabulary
- Social activity: song, rhyme, game or story
- Individual activity: writing, reading, or craft time

Our club leaders have experience teaching English as an additional language to children and are trained to use the Language Clubhouse curriculum and online program. Our club leaders all have diverse linguistic backgrounds and use it as an advantage when teaching kids in English about different languages and cultures. We spread positivity and make learning fun for everyone!
