KIDS - aged 8 to 12
At this age, boys and girls develop confidence and personal autonomy in English. At Celtic Language School we enable our students to learn while having fun, sharing and working with other children. We work through theme-based tasks that make them feel motivated and confident, using English as a tool to interact with the world.
Although we put emphasis on speaking, we start to introduce some written texts both via the course book and also through authentic and motivating materials.
From the very first moment children enter the classroom, we only use English.
JUNIORS - aged 12 – 14
At this age, young learners are intellectually mature enough to progress quickly in their language learning.
Our classes are dynamic and addressed to students’ needs and interests. We constantly aim to motivate our students to improve their English. With this in mind, entertaining and motivating theme-based tasks are employed in the classroom.
We play a great variety of communicative games, work with the course book and other activities, adapted to their likes and interests.
Our students work both individually and in groups to encourage them to cooperate and communicate with the rest of the class. This guarantees progressive improvement of their speaking abilities, their accuracy and their listening comprehension skills.
TEENS - aged 14 – 16
At this age, teenagers are intellectually mature enough to get access to an official qualification. Nowadays the Cambridge English Certificate is the essential qualification to prove your knowledge of English. With this in mind, we offer these two courses which prepare for the First Certificate in English exam (Cambridge University).
Our methodology, seminars and constant assessment sessions guarantee definite success in the exam.
YOUNG ADULTS – aged 16 – 18
At this age, young adults can get access to the Cambridge University Advanced Certificate in English from Cambridge University, which is a renowned qualification in all companies and educational institutions all over the world.
At Celtic Language School we train our students from a young age towards this qualification.
We offer two courses to prepare our students for this exam and achieve level C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
This certificate is often required in order to study in an English speaking country or for positions where fluent English is required.
Having passed the Advanced Certificate, our students can now prepare the highest level of the Cambridge University exams which is equivalent to a native speaker level - C2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
During these two courses we focus on the preparation for this exam.
