Learning objectives:

In the beginning the emphasis is placed on understanding the language and speaking individual words. Vocabulary is slowly but steadily increased with many age-appropriate picture cards and games, so that the children can soon learn to speak simple, short sentences. With the aid of our specially developed teaching materials your child will soon be able to use the English language as naturally as their native language.

Learning age: 2 – 4 years

Infants aged 2 to 4 years still profit from their innate feel for languages. Provided we give our children the opportunity at this age they are able to intuitively learn several languages accent-free. In later life it will not be as easy to learn languages as it is in the initial months and years of their lives. With the aid of our specially developed activities and games, lovingly illustrated pictures and exciting short stories we will gently encourage your child to love the English language and use it just as naturally as their native language.

Learning group: ca. 4 to 6 infants

Teaching takes place in small, age-appropriately divided groups of ca. 4 – 6 children. Until your child has got used to the new group it can be useful for a parent or guardian of the child to take part in the lessons.

Teaching materials:

Set contains: 2 activity books, 1 story book, 1 colouring pad, 1 sticker booklet, 2 audio CDs and the green Mortimer English Club bag. You can find more information about our teaching material here.

In our English for Minis set (ca. 300 words) we cover interesting topics which are appropriate for children. In addition the children become acquainted with many typical English songs and nursery rhymes.

Grammar is picked up intuitively by the children, while simple grammar exercises are incorporated playfully in the lessons. In the extra book “Morty’s Kite Flight” the children also experience enchanting, imaginative adventures.

My best Mortimer English Club experience!

„The Mortimer method looks amazing! My daughter Nora, 9 years old, has already played in my 4 EFC trial lesson. Actually, she doesn't stop singing songs, teaching herself "big & little", "good bye everybody" ... She could be already a teacher!“
