Children will enjoy learning English with regular sessions at home. Here are our top tips for keeping English sessions short and varied.

  • Regular English sessions with your child at home reinforce language and build confidence.
  • Don't try to do too much at once.
  • For very young children, limit sessions to 10-15 minutes. You can go up to 30-40 minutes as they get older.
  • Remember to include lots of variety in each session.
  • For example, you could sing a sing, read a story, play a game or do a craft activity together. 
  • You can read about how to start teaching English at home and how to motivate your kids in our articles.
