English as a Foreign Language

Learn the English language inside and outside the classroom on this fun and interactive programme.

ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE

Get ready to fly high with English.

Our English as a Foreign Language programme is designed for young learners who don’t speak English at home.

This programme will develop core English language skills through theme-based activities and interactive learning – an effective way to learn language quickly and successfully. As they progress through key levels at Bell, your child will be continually monitored and reviewed to make sure they are in the best class for them.

Young learners will also have the opportunity to prepare for and take the internationally-recognised Cambridge English exam to certify their English language achievement.

What to expect

Learning outcomes

Children attending our weekly English as a Foreign Language programme can expect to achieve the following learning outcomes:

  • Gain confidence and become more independent learners
  • Develop their language skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking)
  • Improve vocabulary, pronunciation, and understanding of grammar
  • Gain essential 21st century life skills (communication, critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and cultural awareness)
  • Gain an internationally-recognised qualification for English language (optional)
Learning the Bell Way

Our approach

Children learn through more complex activities and scenario role playing, whilst developing their writing and communication skills. Activities on the programme include:

  • Team challenges and games
  • Role play
  • Q & A surveys
  • Pair, group and whole class activities
  • Vocabulary games
  • English Explorers (additional option)

We all very happy to have enrolled to Bell school, our kids love it and progress at their own rhythm which is respected at Bell . The progress is significantly big for each of them individually and it is evident in the improvement of their communication and understanding of English.
Zoe's Parents
From Geneva
We chose Bell to help Zoe improve her English language skills. The school is friendly and welcoming. Zoe likes going to the course and now she speaks and comprehends a lot better. She is confident and comfortable expressing herself in English and I think the best thing about the school is the fact all instruction is in English.
