Welcome to our afternoon classes
for English Speakers aged 4 - 16
in Therwil and Riehen
Our English for English Speakers classes are for children ages 4 - 16 who attend local schools (starting from the first year of kindergarten) and speak English at home with at least one parent. They are also appropriate for non-English speaking children who have gone to school in an English-speaking environment.
Days and Times
Therwil: Classes in Therwil meet 1 time per week on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoon for 1, 1.5 or 2 hours.
Riehen: Classes in Riehen meet 1 time per week on a Wednesday afternoon for 1.5 hours.
Please see our Timetable for more details.
We teach fundamental skills for fluent and effective communication including:
reading for understanding
writing with a purpose.
Our Reading Program
To promote confidence and accuracy in reading, our reading assistant reads one-on-one with our emergent readers and younger children. She sends the children home with a new reading book from our library every week so they can practice reading at home with their parents.
The children achieve such impressive results in the short classroom time we have and parents can help significantly by working with their children at home as well. Homework is set on a regular basis, usually in the form of reading, practising for spelling tests or extra practise of work done in class. Children will assimilate new information much faster through repetition and practise at home.
