Adult Learning Advice
It can be difficult to know what is right for you. We can help assess your situation and find a personalised study programme or course which can suit you as an individual. We can also help to devise study methods for learners of all ages. If we cannot at first find a solution we will keep trying until we can.
Support for Parents
The majority of parents want to get involved in their child's learning, but with languages it can be rather difficult!
It helps to know language or subject at the level at your child's level. It can help if you already know the language or subject, at least to your childs level. You can get an idea of the level by looking at their school work or by asking their teacher. If your child is finding any difficulty try to get them to talk about it with you.
Well here are some ideas for helping your child to learn a language. Our team is also happy to discuss you can support your child and get involved.
For younger children (ages. 3-7) books and products that help vocabulary learning and simple sentance structure
If your child is taking a language a good step is to ensure that your child is well equipped with a good bilingual dictionary. If taking a language at AS level or onwards they are expected to be able to organise themselves and it is essential to have a large dictionary (not a pocket dictionary) in the language/s they are studying plus ideally a grammar book and verb book.
