Learning objectives: Communication, listening and reading comprehension

Speaking freely in English is a main focus of our courses alongside the consolidation of grammar. Through our many conversational games students will soon be able to communicate instinctively in English. Grammar is explained in great detail and consolidated with many games and exercises. We help to eliminate gaps in basic knowledge, while inhibitions about speaking a new language are gradually reduced. Communication, listening and comprehension are practiced with lots of fun and without the pressure to perform.

Learning age: 9 – 16 years

The demands placed on our children grow considerably after primary school. Large classes and a tightly organised syllabus do not leave much room for the individual at secondary school. It is mainly theoretical knowledge which is taught at school. At Mortimer we have developed a practical concept which puts our children in a position to use the English language actively, freely, creatively and without inhibitions - similar to our native language.

Learning group: ca. 4 to 8 children

Teaching takes place in small, age-appropriately divided groups of ca. 4 – 8 children.

English for you and Fit for Business English – Courses for young adults

At Mortimer young adults can cultivate their language skills in preparation for or at the beginning of an apprenticeship or further study.

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!“
