Objectives and content

English4Kids inspires children to speak English in a dedicated, fun and pedagogical environment. We introduce children to the English language, bolster their self-esteem and help them develop their communication skills.

•  Sweden’s most popular English courses for children since 2005.
•  Introduces and develops your child’s English skills in an inspiring and fun way.
•  Group lessons for children aged 0-12 in Stockholm and Gothenburg.

We mix traditional teaching methods with games, projects, art and song. The classes are held in English by language coaches with English as their mother tongue. We’ve taught groups since 2005, and ever since then we’ve developed a unique study plan where we focus on the children, their world and everyday language. Each semester with English4Kids is based on a central theme that ties the lessons together. In addition to the central theme we include exercises with words, phrases and grammar connect to everyday life, holidays and festivities.

Course Contents

Children aged 0-5: For the youngest children we introduce and explore the English language through song, movement, storytelling, pedagogical and art projects.

Children aged 6-8: For children between 6-8 years old, we base the lessons on exploring the English language through pedagogical games, songs, music,  books, drama, projects and exercise sheets. For children in this age range we also introduce phonetics, reading and creative writing. 

Children aged 9-12: For the older children, the classes continue the exploration of the English language through pedagogical games, music, current news articles, drama and diverse projects. Beyond this we use a book as a basis, to introduce more grammar, reading and creative writing.

FAQ

Are parents allowed to be in the room during the class?
Parents are not allowed in the room during class. However, the first lesson of term can be a little daunting and as such you can of course be nearby until your child feels comfortable. If you feel that your child would prefer you to be in the room throughout the lesson, we recommend you book the ‘Parent and child’ class for children up to 4 years.
How many children are in each group?
Our curriculum is structured for group learning and as such we usually have a minimum of 4-5 children per class. We have circa 7 children per English4Kids coach.
Is an existing language skill level required?
Most of our courses are for beginners and there is no requirement for existing language level. Upgrades advanced courses are for children who have lived abroad, attended an English-speaking school and/or are bilingual. English4Kids 9-12 courses are classed as ‘intermediate’.
