English as a Foreign Language (Ages 5-7)

Discover fun and interactive ways to develop your child's confidence in using everyday written and spoken English.


Learning by practising English.

Our English as a Foreign Language programme is designed for young learners who don’t speak English at home, and would be starting the programme between ages 5 – 7 years.

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 – Starters (Pre A1) or Movers (A1 Beginners).

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