Hello everyone! I'm Katie, and I'm originally from Manchester, UK. I've been teaching English in Prague for more than 6 years. While I've had a variety of students over the years, I've found teaching children to be the most rewarding. I enjoy their energy and their unique way of looking at the world :)

Starting this Autumn, I have these online group courses for children:

--> Beginner (age 6-8yr) (2x 30min per week):
- This course encourages kids to start speaking English from Day 1! We build up the students' language in easy steps in a positive way.
- What makes this course unique is the use of a high-quality (Harvard-researched), interactive, educational software - combined with conversation-based activities.
- This can also be used outside the classroom. So students can listen to the vocabulary (spoken by a native speaker), sing the songs and play the interactive games every day of the week if they wish! Very different and much more fun than regular "homework".. ;)
- This curriculum will get them speaking English much more quickly than with a standard English course, where they only have exposure to the language once or twice a week.

--> Advanced/Bilingual (age 8-10yr)
- 2x30min per week, Tuesday & Friday:
For students that can already communicate in English, but need more opportunity to practise and talk with others their own age. We cover a variety of topics, and students create & share small "video assignments" as well as other fun activities to create a fun and positive learning environment, in and out of the classroom.

--> Intermediate (age 10-11yr):
- 2x 30min per week, Monday & Wednesday
For students that have some knowledge of the language, but maybe struggle to have more advanced conversations in English. We study various topics that will expand their vocabulary, allow them to practise with their peers, and give them the support & confidence they need to speak another language!

I believe the key to learning any language is a positive group atmosphere and approach to learning, which is an important part of all my classes.

When the pandemic started, I moved my students online, and found that it actually benefitted the students in many ways. They were able to make the lesson more personal by being in their own homes, and sharing their favourite things/toys in the lesson. Students could make and share videos with each other in between the lessons to create a positive group experience. The lessons could be more focused, making progress more quickly. And particularly with our beginner course, the students love the use of our interactive educational software, even outside of the lesson.
