Sep 21,2017 - Jun 20,2018 Time: 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm
 

English-speaking children attending Czech primary schools have different language-learning needs to their Czech-speaking classmates. Recognising that they would benefit from an alternative to the standard ESL instruction on offer, Class Acts has been running After School English (previously called “Bohemian Bilinguals”) since 2009. This language program offers an approach similar to programs in the U.S. and the U.K. and includes an emphasis on early writing, critical thinking and creativity. Class Format Classes meet once a week for an hour and usually include group reading and discussion, individual reading. Classes are supplemented with weekly homework assignments, including spelling lists and workbook assignments. Students are also expected to read in English at home, and there is usually an art-related assignment to build on the week’s in-class reading. Who attends? Bilingual children attending Czech state primary schools from all over Prague.

FEE: 6 080,- Kč / school year
