Half-day English lessons for pre-school kids
Programme Little Steps offers half day full of activities following the WOW method. It is suitable for children who are fluent in english as well as children, who never learned other language. The teacher speaks english all the time, accompanying the speech with clear gestures or pictures, so it is easier for children to understand the meaning of the words.
Our aim is to improve and support children’s language skills in a playful way while naturally discovering the world around them with all their senses. Compared to other programs, we offer comprehensive lessons 1-2 days a week according to the parent’s choice.

The WOW! methodology
We want children to learn English the same way they learn their native language, so we teach during natural activities. We work continually with WOW! materials that arein line with their skills at a particular stage of their development. We set adequate learning goals that children naturally achieve at each stage.
Wow! materials are based on the latest psycholinguistic knowledge and have proved their worth throughout the world. They practice and consolidate new knowledge and skills through experiential learning and emotional memory. They motivate communication and present the necessary vocabulary in a practical context. With the purchase of WOW! learning materials you get a colorful workbook with activities related to video stories and video songs, which you can also access on on-line video portal.
The project teaching method gives children the oportunity to learn at their own pace using all their senses while promoting co-operation and friendship with each other. Children learn through solving practical problems over a period of days or weeks in groups or individualy. We motivate children to actively find answers to their „Why?“ and „How?“ questions through their own experience as well as to gain independece in the every day life.
