What makes SMIS-English English Kids exceptional?

SMIS-English Kids English classes give elementary age students the English education only an International School can provide! This includes use of St. Michael’s International School’s extensive children’s library, access to computer assisted English learning materials and international school classrooms. This provides students with the truly international English education only SMIS-English can provide.

SMIS-English English Kids Curriculum

The heart of the SMIS-English Kids English classes is its professionally developed, comprehensive curriculum. Our curriculum combines textbook and hands-on learning that teaches vocabulary, grammar, listening, speaking, reading and writing skills through challenging, engaging and interesting activities. SMIS-English English Kids classes use a wholistic approach to increase students’ English skills and understanding. Classes increase students’ English skills and understanding through engaging activities that combine academic and practical English. The SMIS-English Kids English comprehensive curriculum teaches the English skills students need to become the leaders of tomorrow.

All classes focus on English literacy to increase students’ English academic skills and understanding.  Classes build on these skills and understanding by using engaging activities to move from understanding to ability to use English in academic and practical situations.  As reading is key to learning English, all SMIS-English Kids English students have a weekly Library class where they choose age and level appropriate books from the St. Michael’s International School library to read at home to better continue their English education outside of classes.  SMIS-English Kids English also provides students with materials to study at home which allows them to review class materials during the week and continue to learn and improve their English skills at home.

Experience the difference- SMIS-English Kids English welcomes new students year round. For more information about the SMIS-English After School Kids programme and a week of free trial lessons contact SMIS-English today.
