After Kids School Curriculum

The heart of the SMIS-English Kids English classes is its professionally developed, comprehensive curriculum.  Our curriculum combines textbook learning with hands-on learning that teach vocabulary, grammar, listening, speaking, reading and writing skills through challenging but interesting and enjoyable activities.

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.
