Native English Teachers
At Papakidz, we aim to provide high quality teaching with a trained team of native english speaking teachers, to better guide and aid your children, on the way to success with English.
Native English speakers have a better command of idiomatic language that you just can’t teach in a natural way if English is not your native language. They almost always have a wider and more expressive vocabulary. They feel more comfortable with the language and can use it in a dynamic and playful way, more than a non-native ever could.
Native speaking teachers often demonstrate very different teaching techniques which are better accepted by the students than if a non-native were to use them.
Students also generally feel more comfortable speaking in class when their teacher is a native speaker. The fact that the teacher is a native speaker acts as an unconscious trigger for our students. Our young learners also are motivated by the thought that the accent is genuine and hope to pronounce as well as their teacher !
English Everyday !
Interwoven throughout our day, is our English program. Embedded into all areas of our curriculum, children are immersed in conversational English, music, and hands on, discovery-based activities to foster the love for the English language.
Research suggests that taking advantage of our innate abilities to learn languages at an early age with ease, opens up a world of opportunity for children.
They will be more flexible at learning other languages and adept at imitating sounds, creating the opportunity for speech that is free of foreign accent. Also, a foreign or second language in early childhood produces higher cognitive function and better communication skills.
