About this course
In teaching iPrimary English program we follow all the principles of learning English as a native language. The students learn to read and write with the help of phonics, they expand vocabulary, read, discuss and dramatise authentic stories, fairy-tales and poems. The English language is introduced to students as a system: they get acquainted with parts of speech, punctuation, etc.
What is the difference between this English course and English as a Second Language at school?
Let’s compare the courses:
|General English at school||English as a subject of iPrimary|
Do the students really need two different English courses - English as a Second Language and English as the native language?
When kids learn English as a mother tongue it is obviously different from learning English as a Second Language. While studying at school children learn general English and their courses are specifically designed for foreigners and exploit teaching methods aimed at students with different mother tongues and the English course we offer is the one aimed at english speaking kids and uses the approaches which are used to teach language and literature in your national schools in your language. Therefore, learning language differently will undoubtedly be beneficial for every student.
