Native Level English Speaker

Strengthen their core language, numeracy and literacy skills in an English-medium learning environment.
Native Level English Programme

Strengthening English language skills

Our Native Level English Speaker programme is designed for young learners who speak English at home – as a first or second language.

Together we will support your child to develop a strong foundation of language and communication skills, with an emphasis on their writing capabilities for multiple purposes.

This programme is also a perfect supplement to the needs of children who may usually be studying in French; broadening their capabilities and capacity for learning by immersing them in an English-medium learning environment.

Young Learners Programme
My daughter started classes at Bell when she was 5 years old. Today she is 16 and thanks to Bell she obtained the C1 this year.
Thank you all for the past almost 5 years at Bell – my son has always loved ‘English School’ – and for the education he has had at Bell throughout the years (and the homeworks you have always given us) and we are grateful to you all. You have contributed to our son’s development.
